Rounded bush to 3 feet tall, yields tender, sweet green fruits very early for an eggplant. Left to mature, the Korean Red’s fruits reach 4-6 ounces, taking on a red-orange color and are quite decorative — perfect for arrangements. (70 days)
Start seed indoors 8 to 12 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Surface sow and keep moist until sprouts appear, which can take up to 3 weeks. Transplant into the garden when weather has settled and soil is warm. Provide rich, well composted soil and ample moisture. Space plants 18-inches apart.
Note: Days to maturity are based on transplants, and are approximate. Most species of eggplant are from India or Africa, which indicates these plants prefer heat.
