    I do love the small-fruited Asian-type eggplants, and Little Fingers is no exception. Purple, smaller-sized eggplants and plenty of them. Started producing early. They are the perfect size to pick for grilling. Slice in half and grill or cut in sections for kabobs.

    Small fruit on a big plant. Grows much like Slim Jim, but fruits are about twice the size. Fruits grow in clusters of three or more. Very productive.
