(49 days. F1 Hybrid) Fairy Tale is a petite plant with extraordinary productivity. The decorative miniature eggplants are white with violet/purple stripes. The fruit is sweet, non-bitter, with tender skin and few seeds. The elongated oval eggplants can be picked when quite small at 1-2 ounces, or they can be left on the plant until double the weight, yet the flavor and tenderness will remain. Fairy Tale eggplants are recommended for marinating and grilling whole. Growing only 2-1/2 feet tall and wide, Fairy Tale is perfect for container gardening. A 2005 All-America Selection winner.
