This page gives instructions on how to buy eggplant seeds from David's Garden Seeds. Eggplant is a highly diverse crop widely cultivated around the globe.
While eggplant generally grows best in dependably warm and settled
weather, we have eggplant varieties for performance in less favorable
conditions, as well as for superior flavor and appearance.
