The eggplant just kept on growing, but never turned purple. After consulting with my brother in Virginia, he informed me that there is another type of eggplant that is white. ( http://whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/EggplantWhite.htm )
Caitlin is showing how big the eggplant got right before it got a small rot spot. We will try cooking it up next week.
There is also a purple eggplant growing on another plant. This one is still small, but it is growing fast.
