An early maturing variety! Korean Red Eggplant (Solanum melongena) yields delicious green fruits that turn a brilliant red-orange color, and reach 4- to 6-ounces, if left to mature. The flavor is so mild and sweet that you won’t have to use traditional cooking techniques to remove the bitterness that’s often associated with other types. (70 days)
Each packet contains approximately 25-35 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Start indoors 8-12 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Transplant outside after the soil has warmed. Space plants 18-24 inches apart in raised beds or double rows 2-3 feet apart. Plants prefer full sun and fertile soil with lots of organic matter.
To harvest large fruits, remove most of the side shoots and select two or three fruits to develop on one plant. For smaller fruits, allow the plants to develop naturally. Harvest while fruit is young and shiny for best flavor. Cut fruits from the plants with one inch of stem attached.
