Grow Easter Eggs! Yes, Chocolate Eggs!


Now you can grow chocolate eggs with this heirloom seed

Grow Easter eggs! Are you up for a gardening challenge? Few people realize that you can grow this chocolate treat with rare heirloom seeds. Ben’s (ADORABLE) daughter helps Ben out … and, well, Ben’s really gone all out, too!

To celebrate Easter this year, why not grow chocolate Easter eggs?

Growing Easter eggs has long been a closely guarded secret that only candy companies knew how to pull off.

However, we’ve finally been able to procure some of the precious seeds of the heirloom variety of eggplant that produces this indulgent treat.  

Watch Ben explain the remarkable history and his own attempts at growing Easter eggs at home.

What do you think? We hope you’ll share your comments below!

P.S. If you don’t have time to grow your own Easter eggs, have fun coloring eggs! Here’s how to dye Easter eggs naturally. Always a great activity for the young and young at heart!

What a bunch of rubbish! You show them growing first in a tree, then vines, back to trees trained to grow on the wall, then garden plants! Everyone knows the Easter Bunny brings those you don't buy at the grocers!!! Get your facts straight!

Alleluia! He is Risen Indeed!
