description for "Eggplant: Solanum melongena 'Italian Trio'"

'Italian Trio' is a custom eggplant seed mix from Renee's Seeds that combines teardrop-shaped, purple black 'Nadia,' gorgeous, oval-shaped magenta 'Beatrice,' and heirloom rose and white, globe-shaped 'Rosa Bianca.' The strong plants with velvety leaves and lavender blossoms bear abundant crops of curvaceous glossy fruits with tender skins and succulent flesh that is never bitter or seedy. Enjoy in recipes from all Mediterranean cuisines. Pick when fruits have sized up and are firm fleshed and glossy. Slice _ inch thick, brush with olive oil and broil until tender. Then layer with a rich tomato sauce, fresh herbs and several cheeses to make eggplant parmesan. Bake whole in a hot oven, then scoop out flesh and mash with garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and chopped parsley for a savory dip to serve on toasted pita bread. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
