The fruit resemble black bombs or teardrops because both the skin and the calyx are a deep black with a purplish tinge. There are probably others but this is the only eggplant we know of with a black calyx. Japanese in origin, Black Egg produces unusually tender fruit on vigorous 3 foot plants. Sets fruit early (even in cool weather) and also is best picked early. 30 seeds.
