A standard for home gardeners for decades, first introduced by W. Atlee Burpee in 1902. You can expect at least 4-6 dark purple, 1-3 pound teardrop shaped fruits per plant. Some growers claim up to 15 fruits per plant under ideal conditions. Fruits are held high off the ground on sturdy 24-30″ plants. High quality, holds well in storage. Wonderful fried, steamed, grilled, stuffed or added to your favorite Italian recipes.
