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.

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: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/BODY_... )

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.
