It is hard to say what makes Rosita one of the most popular eggplants around. Maybe it's the sweet, never-bitter flavor, the buttery, tender texture of the flesh, or perhaps the attractive, plum-colored, teardrop-shaped fruit? This heirloom is also prolific, giving massive yields of attractive 8-inch long, 4-inch wide fruit over a long season. This incredible heirloom was developed in Puerto Rico in the 1940s by the Puerto Rico Agricultural Experiment Station, Rio Piedras. The non-bitter flavor is thanks to Rosita’s habit of taking longer to produce seed. (The presence of seeds causes the fruit to some times become bitter.) A perfect marketing variety, heat tolerant, high yielding, beautiful and highly gourmet!
