Description

Classic eggplant’s elongated oval, green calyxed fruit are the size and shape well known. The glossy, deep purple-black color of Classic is preferred and vigorous plant supports heavy yields of high quality fruit._x000D_ _x000D_ Note: This item is grown to order only!_x000D_ _x000D_ Single_x000D_ _x000D_  

Plant about 18 inches apart and stake if you don’t want the heavy fruit to pull the plants down.  Harvest when the are plump but don’t wait until they are too large.  They may not get to the size you are used to seeing in the supermarket. Eggplants are tender, and cold weather may weaken them. Use row covers for a real boost in performance and insect control. Remove when plants reach the covers or when blossoms first appear. Space transplants 18″ apart in rows 30-36″ apart, or 2 rows on poly mulch, 18-24″ between plants.
