Product description

Southern Exposure Seed Exchange - A heirloom from Puerto Rico. 4 ft. tall plants produce excellent yields of lavender-pink, teardrop-shaped fruits with white shoulders. The skin is tender without a trace of bitterness, and the white flesh is mild and sweet because the seeds are so late to develop in the fruits.

  • Certified Organic 
  • Heirloom 
  • Especially well-suited to the South-East 
  • .25g, 50-80 seeds 

    Instructions - Start seeds 8-10 weeks before setting outside, and set out 1-2 weeks after your last frost-free date. Don’t rush the season because cold-shock can stunt the seedlings. Flowers may not set fruit during exceptionally hot weather. Mature plants have good vigor in fall, so cover plants on frosty nights for 1-2 weeks to extend the harvest season. Keep well picked to keep plants producing. Small fruits have the best eating quality. Fruits are ripe when the skin appears glossy and the fruit is resilient to thumb pressure.

    • Space plants at 24" in equidistant spacing or 20" apart in rows 36" apart. 
    • Avoid growing on soil that has previously grown tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, or especially eggplants for the past three years. 
    • Days to maturity are from the transplant date
