Another terrific variety from our Italian friends at Fratelli Ingegnoli. Exceptionally early, we were harvesting eggplants from Slim Jim before some of the other varieties even had blossoms. Harvest at any size but 4 to 5 inches is good. Fruits are long, slender, and purple. Flavor is mild. The plant itself is flower garden pretty, a lovely soft purple color. 30 seeds.

PLANTING: Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed. Harvest- When fruit is shiny and smooth, before losing its luster. Tips- Plant in fertile soil, water with compost tea every two weeks and use row cover to give the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Mulch and keep well watered.
