Hi,

W∴ Balboos wrote:
The others are Asian style[^].


I know more about this than meets the eye. I recognize that eggplant variety. The 'Asian Style' eggplant you are showing by Ferry-Morse is most likely derived from Ichiban which is a hybrid F1 seed. The name 'Ichiban' was trademarked by Montsano and they abandoned this particular eggplant variety for unknown reasons just a few years ago. Bonnie, Ferry-Morse, Burpee and dozens of other seed suppliers continued to sell the variety under different names. There are almost no legal protections for agricultural genetic research. These companies can legally steal agricultural research from each other simply by using the seeds.

There are also no protections for the consumer... the seed companies are not required to tell you whether or not the seed is F1, F2, F3, S1, S2 or even if the seed is a hybrid or cross.

An interesting side effect has developed due to the lack of rules and regulation:

The plants and seeds being sold at your local hardware and general store are designed to grow for a single season. The seed supplier expects you to come back next year to buy more seeds and plants. They encourage/enforce this by selling a F1 phenotype which produces a high yield.

Btw,

If both your "White Casper" and "Asian Style" eggplant varieties are exhibiting the same cotyledon curling/falling off problem then it's unlikely genetic and probably soil related.

Best Wishes,
-David Delaune
