The Q&A Archives: What Is The Name And Cultural Requirements For This Plant?

Question: I have received a "Easter Egg Plant" as a gift. However, the giver does not know the botanical name or cultural requirements for this plant. Can you give me any assistance regarding this plant? Thank you.

Answer: Your Easter Egg Plant is either an actual variety of eggplant or a very close relative to it. (Here is a photo of a small, egg shaped, pastel white one: )

Care would be like that for an eggplant: rich soil kept evenly moist yet not soggy and full sun. Gourmet vegetable seed companies occasionally offer variants such as this one.
