OPHELIA EGGPLANT

This is a very interesting alternative for the patio that will produce dozen of fruit over the course of the season. Eggplants are small, a little over 2 oz each, and born in clusters like a tomato. They look just like a miniature eggplant with a deep purple color and an oval round shape. Plants are smallish and compact but will require a pretty good sized pot. Flavor is fine and ophelia makes a very nice hors d'oevres. 20 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.
