Plant Features

Gretel Eggplant Plants produce clusters of glossy white eggplants on bushy plants that are loaded with fruits. These early maturing fruits have thin skins with no bitterness, a very sweet flavor, and very few seeds. Eggplants can be harvested as early as 3-inches or as late as 10-inches without affecting their flavor. Gretel was awarded the AAS award received in 2009.


We grow our Gretel Eggplant Plants organically and guarantee them to arrive alive and thriving!

Comment: Arrived safe, secure and healthy, albeit very small. Transplanted into a bed….and who could plant a Hansel with a Gretel?!? Took awhile to see a change in growth, but this little plant has taken off, and showing signs of tiny eggplants! Anticipating a fairy tale meal or many!

Comment: This baby started getting bigger as soon as I took it out of the package....had to wait 3 days until I had a chance to get it in the veggie garden and it seemed to cry out , Plant me now! In for 5 days and already a happy, growing plant. Wish I had ordered more while on sale.
