55 days. Solanum melongena. (F1) This early maturing plant produces high yields of 3 to 10" long shiny dark purple eggplants. It is non-bitter and perfect for slicing thin onto pizza, casseroles, grilling, or stuffing. This variety is perfect for gourmet dishes. With most eggplants, you must remove the glossy purple skin to dispose of the bad taste, but not so with this variety. They are tender and non-bitter. Best when harvested when 2 to 4" long. It has very few seeds. Grows extremely well in containers. Excellent choice for home gardens.

Eggplant Seed Planting Information:

Eggplants do best in well-drained soil that has been enhanced with compost and manure. They thrive in high heat and high humidity areas. Plant your seeds indoors, 6 to 8 weeks before setting outside. When seedlings are 4" to 6" tall, transplant them into larger pots so roots can grow properly. Grow transplants at 50 F to 70 F.  Spring planting should occur 2 weeks after last frost. Protect the plants from frost and wind. Plants will not set fruit when nighttime temperatures fall below 65 F. Plants can grow 3 ft tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Water well during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro once a month. Side dress plants with compost and manure.

Harvest Tips:

Cut fruit from plant when they are fully mature and reach full color.
