Parthenocarpic eggplant, the first we've seen in commerce. Able to produce fruit without pollination, and when grown in isolation from other eggplant varieties, the ovules do not develop into seed, but remain soft and light colored, enabling the production of eggplant with "seedless" flesh. This variety should be tested for introduction of extra-high quality fruit. Since seed are not set, fruit quality should tend to last longer on plant and in storage, and the flesh would resist developing the bitterness assiciated with maturing seed. Fruit are oblong, avg, 8"L x 4"W, with deep black-purple skin and green calyx. Flesh is firm, sweet and capable of very high quality. Fresh Mkt, Restaurant, Shipping. 3008 Shikou F1 70-80 days.
