What a beauty this Italian heirloom eggplant is. Its round fruits are lavender streaked over a creamy skin. The skin is delicate and the flesh tastes creamy. This eggplant is not overwhelming in size with its four to six inch fruits. Perhaps homemade Parmigiana di Melanzane is in your future.
Transplant these seedlings 18″ apart in rows 24″ apart. Eggplant requires six to eight hours of sun. These eggplants are more productive with warm nights. So, if you are located in an area with cool evenings consider covering the plants at night.
The small orange globes taste great grilled or in stir-frys. Harvest these eggplants when they are still slightly green.
These baseball-sized eggplants are yellow with purple striping.
