It all boils down to the audience you are trying to sell to.  Their knowledge, money and/or open-mindedness, not necessarily in that order...

>From grocery stores, I get $.80/lb for both "regular" and oriental 
eggplant.  About 35lb in banana boxes.  Demand for "regular" is only 
fair.  Demand for oriental is very poor.  At farmers markets, $1 each 
or 4 for $3 for both types.  Demand for both at farmers markets is very 
low.  I plant about 10% as much eggplant as okra, zucchini, tomatoes, 
or peppers.  I spend more time trying to sell the eggplant.  And throw 
more of it away.  Bah!  Humbug!  :-)

Willie, ONWARD!  Through the fog!
