Louisiana Green Round Eggplant
1 Attachment(s)
This year I didnt have good luck germinating (Louisiana Green Oval) eggplant seeds, so I decided to purchase a couple of plants called( Louisiana Green Round), the local nursery couldnt tell me if it was OP/Heirloom or hybrid. The fruits are slightly larger than a softball and seem to be producing fairly well.

Hopefully, someone can give me more information than the nursery.

They look like Thai and Cambodian eggplants I've seen. Similar to matti gulla types I've seen, too. Never heard of Louisiana Green Round. Maybe a new variety? Or a renaming of an Asian variety?

I looked them up and it's hard to tell which one or if any of those

Hopefully next year I can get the Louisiana green oval they were tasty and had very few seeds

If the LGR taste good I'll save some seeds and try them next year, and hope they come back true

I have not grown Louisiana Round Green but have grown Louisiana Long Green many times. From what I've seen at seed sellers web sites that I frequent, it is an OP variety. I think Baker Creek offered it a couple of seasons but not sure if they do now. Your pics show the different shades of green on the skin and that's something I've seen with LLG, as well.

I just went to the Baker Creek website and I didn't see the LGR listed, but I have grown the LLG before and they did quite well.

I know this is an old thread but I'm looking for Louisiana Oval Green seeds or a place where I can buy plants. TIA for the help.
