Over 100 years old, this 1902 introduction was an immediate hit because the plants ripened perfect fruits dramatically earlier than other varieties. It became the common market eggplant of today. Harvested fresh, however, makes all the difference.

Start eggplant indoors 6-9 weeks before the average last frost. Soak seeds first to encourage germination and then sow 5 mm deep. Using bottom heat for a week to 10 days will help with sprouting. Transplant when the soil has warmed in a location that gets 8-10 hours of direct sun. If growing eggplant in raised beds or containers, keep the plants well-watered.

Space 45-70 cm apart in the garden.

If growing in containers use large container-approx. 3 plants per 5-gallon container.
