Please go to the above link. This is such
a beautiful an intriguing eggplant. I recently
purchased a packet of seeds. Upon googling it,
you absolutely cannot find ANY information, nor any
other photographs other than what Baker Seeds
shows here. I don't believe it's offered anywhere
else on the internet.

Has any one ever grown it or can any one shed
some light on it's background/history for me?

They sure are groovy-looking! I don't have any more info, but I've got other varieties of eggplant I'm trying from Baker Creek (Thai yellow, arugumam, and Louisiana long green) if you'd like to swap seeds.

As an Italian gal, I do love some eggplant. :)

It is a new introduction, so it will take some time to get feedback. Eggplant is quite popular in southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. There are lots of varieties from those areas. Only a few have made it to the North American market. http://www.plantnames.unimelb.edu.au/new/Sorting/CATALOGUE/Pt2-Asian-eggplants.html#Solanum-torvum

I submitted it to PlantFiles a few days back. I would hope if BakerCreek is offering it it would be 'real'. It looks almost to beautiful to be an eggplant and I've seen 100's of eggplants!

Baker Creek's pictures are obviously of "premium" specimens (of course), but I haven't caught them doctoring photos or misrepresenting a variety's appearance yet.

Are those the green ones that kind of look like Jalapenos? No, not looking for a trade, just wondering.

From the pictures I don't think they look that way..
The only available photos are from Baker Creek from what I know.

I was looking in the BC catalog and that was the only one saw with that name. Just wonder if we were talking about the same thing?
