This plant is so cute, pretty and petite that it can be used as an ornamental edible in garden beds and containers. It grows less than 24 inches tall, yet produces a prolific number of 2 to 3 inch egg-shaped, glossy, purple-black fruits. Flavor is always a top priority in AAS judging, and judges agreed that the taste was excellent, mild and less bitter than comparison varieties. Try them roasted or in dips and salads. Yum! Thornless leaves and calyxes allow for painless harvesting and makes Patio Baby child-friendly, too. Plants will continue to produce fruit throughout the entire season. First pickings in northern areas were up to a week earlier than other varieties, just 45 days from transplanting.
