75 days. Solanum melongena. Open Pollinated. The plant produces good yields of small 2 to 3" round bright red eggplants. Perfect for grilling, frying, stuffing, baking, and pickling. Well known in Asian cuisine and used in stir-fries. It is not bitter unless allowed to ripen to the red stage. Picked green and prepared as you would any other eggplant. They are unusual, attractive, and very tasty. Used extensively in Asian dishes and Vietnamese cooking. Also, known as Hmong Red Eggplant and Miniature Pumpkin Eggplants. An excellent choice for home gardens and specialty market growers. A variety from Thailand.

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.
