Harvest: When fruit is shiny and smooth, before losing its luster. Use a sharp instrument to cut the eggplants from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other eggplants on the plant. 

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amend with composted if needed. It helps to use row cover early in the season, giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.

    Bride eggplant

    The plants are not yet in the ground. I do not have a heated area for starting seed and can only rely on a cold frame. The plants will go in probably in another week or so. I’ll be lucky to get any fruit from them but you never know. Can’t say one way or the other if I recommend it or not yet, but at least the seeds did germinate and grow.

    Excellent seeds

    Pinetree is where I will always buy my seeds from. The seedlings are growing and getting ready to be introduced to the outdoors.
