looking for seeds of a white italian eggplant

jesse217April 11, 2007

I have been seed saving from an italian white eggplant variety brought from italy - but this year they are not germinating well and i'm afraid i may lose the strain.

they are not exceptionally large, but small seeded with great flavor. Any thoughts on how to replace or what it might be? I don't have any photos. I am also posting on seed savers. thanks

I know of a White Italian Eggplant simply called "Italian White" (Melanzana Bianca Ovale). It is sold by Seeds of Change.

They sell packets and seedlings for these in NY. They are also known as ghost eggplants or White Eggplant "Casper".

I grew a Casper in a container indoors, and it grew to the size of my forearm over two months! I didn't get to taste it, because it got overrun by flies - wish it was planted outside!
