Default Baby white tiger eggplant?

So I am sowing eggplant seeds this week, and noticed I have seeds for Baby White Tiger Eggplant, probably from a swap here on Tomatoville last year. There is no other detail on the bag, and I can't find info online. There are green tigers and a purple tiger, I am guessing this one is mostly white?

Does anyone have information on this plant? I am hoping for interesting coloured, small fruit with not too long a season...

Lindy, I took the 'Baby' part off my search and found this http://www.kitazawaseed.com/seed_231-33.html

It's on page 18 of their 2016 catalog. I can see why someone would add Baby to the name.

Thanks, Salt! I did see that one, and also purple tiger and Baby White Eggplant! So I don't think I am really sure of what it is right now. I may not grow it, I don't have enough space for those sorts of experiments yet, and need a particular sort of Eggplant for its intended use!

I think the link Salt gave you is the best. I believe your going to have a white eggplant with stripes for sure, which is where the Tiger part comes in.

I think the reason you may not find specifically Baby White Tiger is from part of an article from Specialty Produce is this ...

"Often they will be harvested extremely young, in which case they will be referred to as "Baby White eggplant". The flavor of raw White eggplant is fruity and mild ..."
