F1 Bonica Aubergine Seeds

[78 days] An extremely popular French-bred hybrid, Bonica is a heavy cropper, producing numerous long, oval fruits with a deep purple, glossy skin and a wonderful taste. The plants are tall and bushy and do best in the greenhouse or in a polytunnel. Even so, if you have an especially sunny patio they’ll thrive in containers as well.

A high yielder and well-adapted to difficult growing conditions, Bonica is a great aubergine for both the beginner and the experienced gardener alike.
