Deep purple and almost black, with wonderful, mild flavor, Ichiban adds interest to the garden as well entrees. Long and slender fruits are outstanding in stir fries, oriental dishes and are great for grilling, or roasting to add to a vegetable platter. Attractive plants of Asian origin, Ichiban yields a 10 inch fruit with a thinner skin than regular types of eggplant. This is an excellent choice for the home garden for looks and taste.
