Kamo Eggplant

Kamo eggplant is a baseball-sized treat, round and small. We used this one to make eggplant parmesan and it was just enough for the two of us. Unfortunately, that meant no left-overs for lunch the next day. My, it was delicious!
I find these plants to be so beautiful with their velvet leaves of purple and green.
This variety is especially showy as the purple is a deep color which creates a spectacular contrast against the green leaves. Kamo is attractive enough to plant it as an ornamental.
Pretty purple flowers hang gracefully.
 But don't let their beauty fool you. They are protected by thorns.
A wonderful eggplant, Kamo is shiny enough to reflect the blue sky.


  1. Very good web site Andy with lots of useful information. I am also interested in gardening and growing tomatoes, eggplants, blueberries, mangoes, etc. in my kitchen garden.

    1. Thanks! I looked at your website and it is full of wonderful information. I read your article on growing papaya, and found it very useful. I'm growing 5 papaya from seed and and waiting for them to show if they are male/female/both. Your article will help me to identify which type I have...Thanks!
