Petch Siam Eggplant (65 Days)

Apple Green is our substitute for Petch Siam

Thai eggplants are the smallest of cultivated varieties and essential in curry dishes, soaking up all the distinctive flavors. The little round beauties, harvested at 2-3”, have green and white variegation and firm,very mild flesh. We starting harvesting here in early August and an abundance left to come. Use in stir-fries, for grilling, baking or pickling. 

30 seeds


Germ 5-14 days

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.

    Bring Back Petch Siam!

    First year, didn't do well. Second year, my neighbor took some of my seedlings and she had great luck. This year, my seedlings are hearty. This one is susceptible to flea beetles, so I may cloche and net it, but these little guys are delicious. Hope you get the seed again. Also, is it an heirloom? Can I save this seed? BTW, my neighbor is a novice gardener.

    Petch Siam

    4 out of 6 plants sprouted. Seedings are healthy and growing. Cannot wait to see what is to come!

    Good seeds

    I was happy with the germination of the seeds. I would like to see more information on the seed packets about growth habits of all the seeds. I also felt there were fewer seeds in the packet than in seeds I have purchased from other companies.

    Hi Caroline, We actually just purchased a new printer for our packets, that will provide more space to include useful information like you mentioned. The fewer seeds in the packet - sometimes that because seed prices go up. We like to offer our seed packets at a reasonable price. So in order to do that, the seed count goes down sometimes. Thanks for the feedback! Pinetree Garden Seeds
