EXCLUSIVE - Our mixed seed packet offers an easy way to grow the three best varieties of hybrid Asian eggplants. Their glossy, tender skins enclose succulent, creamy-smooth flesh, that is never bitter and easy to quickly slice and cook. These beauties are borne in abundance with multiple clusters of slender, elongated fruits on well-branched, extra-early plants.

Seeds are color coded with USDA food grade stain to distinguish varieties; make sure to plant some of each.
Yellow seed = Asian Bride magenta eggplant
Green seed = Charming white eggplant
Pink seed = Farmer’s Long purple eggplant

BEST TO START INDOORS

In early spring, start indoors about 2 months before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 50-55°F (10-13°C) range. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist and warm 80-85°F (27-30°C) and provide a strong light source until ready to plant outside. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, transplant into deeper individual containers. Maintain at 70-75°F (21-24°C). Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Transplant 2 feet apart into rich soil in full sun.

 

GROWING NOTES

Don’t transplant these heat-lovers outdoors until nights stay securely above 55°F (13°C). Prepare soil well with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots and mulch well. Fertilize plants regularly throughout the season.

 

HARVEST AND USE

Pick when fruits have sized up and are firm fleshed and glossy. Harvest Charming babies at 3 to 6 inches, Asian Bride at 7 to 8 inches, and Farmers Long at 9 to 11 inches, or before fruits get dull and seedy. Slice for great sautés or halve lengthwise, brush with oil and grill with your favorite herbs and cheese or Asian-style seasonings.
