SOLD OUT - The Seed Savers Exchange - This productive variety bears large, green, and oval-shaped fruit with an excellent, sweet flavor. Fruits are borne singly, have faint purple stripes, and mature in color from green to yellow. Mature plants reach 1.5-2' tall and bear fruits that grow 5-7" long and 3-4" wide and weigh 11-15 ounces. Long popular on the Exchange, this variety was acquired by Seed Savers Exchange in the 1980s from Gleckler’s Seedsmen of Ohio. 90-100 days.
Start eggplant indoors 6-9 weeks before the average last frost. Soak seeds first to encourage germination and then sow ¼" deep. Using bottom heat for a week to 10 days will help with sprouting. Transplant in warm soil in a location that gets 8-10 hours of direct sun each day. If growing eggplant in raised beds or containers, keep the plants well-watered.
