ichiban seeds or alternative
Am I right in thinking that now the only way to get hold of an ichiban eggplant is to buy the starts from Bonnie? No seed dealers anymore?
I used to grow these and they're by far my favorite eggplant, but I won't buy Bonnie plants, for a variety of reasons. I tried the Millionaire that a lot of seed companies were touting as a replacement and found that wasn't in the same class at all--much less flavor and not as pleasant tasting. Right now I'm growing Ping Tun, and that's okay, just different.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a better alternative? How is Orient Express or Bride?
