If you are looking for an eggplant to grow in cooler, shorter growing seasons then Diamond is the best eggplant for the job!  The Diamond Eggplant is an extremely hard to find eggplant variety that comes from the Republic of the Ukraine. Seed for the Diamond Eggplant was introduced to the United States in 1993 by the Seed Savers Exchange.

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
