Key Features

  • Heritage variety
  • Grown in Europe since the 1900s
  • Excellent flavours from long bodied fruit

Aubergine 'Long Purple' is a popular heritage variety, grown in Europe since the 1900s. It boasts excellent flavours and long bodied fruits with very dark purple, shiny skin. These aubergines are best eaten slightly under ripe. Remove small fruits to leave no more than 6 fruit to develop and mature.

Our grafted Aubergine 'Long Purple' gives you confidence in two ways: grafting on a strong rootstock helps ensure reliability with vigorous growth, larger yields and better disease resistance; and our choice of contrasting varieties for sweetness and taste. Enjoy a good crop of all three from mid-summer until early autumn.

Aubergines are suited to growing in a sheltered spot with plenty of sun, including on a patio in a pot.
