High Mowing Organic Seeds - Slender, petite eggplants fantastic for grilling.
Dark purple skin is thin and tender. The flesh has a silky texture with few seeds and a mildly sweet flavor needing very little cooking time. Harvest when the fruit is young and glossy.
Instructions - Deep well-drained sandy loam with pH 6.5-6.8 is best. Eggplants are heavy feeders. Plants are sensitive to nitrogen; if over-fertilized, they will grow excessive foliage and produce less fruit. Use a high-phosphorous starter. Sow seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before the last frost date. The optimal soil temperature for germination is 85°F. Seeds can be sown thickly into flats and then planted into cell trays or containers after true leaves appear. Plant outdoors when daytime temperatures are at least 65°F and nighttime temperatures are above 50°F. Plastic mulch and floating row cover may be used to increase soil and air temperatures and ward off insects.
Harvest & Storage - Harvest eggplants when the skin is glossy and a thumbprint will not leave an impression, if the seeds are brown fruit is over-ripe. Regular harvest increases the production of fruit. Store at 50-55ºF and 90% relative humidity. Will keep quality for up to one week.
