Blue Marble is a nice, pretty, early eggplant, which sizes up quickly for an early harvest. Nearly seedless when young and softball size, but plants seem to whither later in the season. Plant this one for earlier fruit, and other varieties for later.

Beautiful round fruit with no bitterness even when unpeeled. In a soggy summer when 60 tomato plants, 30 peppers and all my zucchini failed, my Italian Blue Marbles were the stars of the garden.
