Germ 5-14 days
Turkish Heirloom
Originally from Turkey and quite popular in all the Mediterranean countries. It produces dozens of 2 oz, orange-red fruit that resemble small tomatoes. Plants are very tall, as much as 4’ and it is reported that the fruits are best eaten when still green or beginning to change 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.

I recommend this product

My top 3 selections.

I grew a wide selection of eggplant to see what grows and taste good. This is in the top 3 I continue to buy from Pinetree. Grows well in my climate. Michigan. Easy to harvest, clean, slice and cook. Smaller than the long or ovoid shaped eggplants BUT it makes up for size with a really nice flavor. HARD TO FIND. This is the 2019 growing season and I bought another company's seeds. Inspected them and almost 25% were bad seed. Pinetree 's seed all looked proper and have not EVER had a seed germination failure with this vegetable.
