ROTUNDA ROSA BIANCA SFUMATA EGGPLANT IS LITERALLY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLUS SIZED EGGPLANT EVER! ALL THE SHADES OF PURPLE FROM PALE LILAC TO DEEP GLOSSY SHADES, ITALIAN HEIRLOOM GROWN FROM ITALIAN SEEDS OVER GENERATIONS!

I was SO lucky to get these from a lovely lady who has grown these from the same seed stock that she brought with her from Italy over 40 years ago! Of course, these days you can’t (and shouldn’t) bring seeds in willy-nilly from overseas but in those days just about anything could be brought in with no worries!

So she has been collecting the seeds and re-growing them for all this time. Maria, you rock! And now your true Italian eggplants will be grown all over Perth making them less likely to die out!

This Italian striped eggplant variety ‘Rotonda bianca sfumata’ produces beautiful, roundish, purple-white-striped aubergines. It is very vigorous and productive. It is also well suited as a pot plant, which makes it ideal for growing on the sunny, warm and sheltered balcony.

Also called Romanesca. Big, very round eggplant; A rose-violet fading to white. Lovely fruit with excellent taste. Very high yielding. 80 days.
