Description / Easter Egg Plant Seeds

Who says Mother Nature hasn't got a sense of humor? You really won't believe Easter Egg Plant until you grow it and watch the fruit develop for yourself—it begins white, looking for all the world like a bunch of hen's eggs, and then matures to deep pastel cream, yellow, orange, and even green. There's nothing else like it.

Just 12 inches high, the petite plants can sport a dozen "eggs" in a season. This is an ornamental eggplant, and the "eggs" are the fruits, full of seeds. They open ghostly white—that's when they really look like a dozen eggs from the supermarket—and then change color as they mature.

The Easter Egg Plant begins the season with rather large, attractive purple blooms. These pass, and the fruit grows where the flowers once were. If you have a short growing season, you will definitely want to start this one indoors in late winter and then transplant it. The flowers arise in late spring to early summer, so the fruit doesn't get started until summer. Give it time to mature: you will enjoy the color changes as it does.

These Easter eggs are about the size and shape of a regular hen's egg. They last for several weeks on the plant, and are so much fun to show off. The large, wide green foliage protects them from sunscald, and looks attractive in its own right all season long.

Very cute
Review by Jade C
I bought these last year from Park Seed. Previously, I bought seeds from another vendor, but none of those plants sprouted. These did, much to my delight! They're so super cute. They really like warm weather, I notice.

Great conversation piece
Review by Carole M
I grew these for the first 2 years and they did amazing. I try every year after, but no luck, but i think it is my soil. This year i am going to put them in large flower pots so i can control the soil. Great fun to grow, looks exactly like the picture shows.

Amazing plant!
Review by Bacon2009
I bought this packet at a dollar store because it sounded interesting enough to capture the attention of my grandson while growing. I had no idea what it would become. Much to my, and everyone else's surprise and amazement, the "fruit" really looks and feels like real eggs. Everyone who sees it, wants one. I can't wait to see the eggs change colors!! This is a very fun plant to have and to watch grow. I recommend it to everyone.
