My Mitoyo eggplant could really be an ornamental plant if not for the flea beetle damage. It's a really gorgeous plant, with dark purple shading on the foliage and the usual beautiful lavender eggplant flowers. Even the satiny black fruit with black calyxes are pretty!
I like eggplant almost as much as tomatoes - may have to adjust my selection and just grow eggplant and tomatoes next year
