(Solanum melongena and others) 25-35
seeds per packet. We offer the best selection of
quality heirloom eggplants in the USA. This is my
favorite crop, as it is easy to grow, and the fruit is
nutritious and incredibly delicious. Another of the
great staple agricultural crops of India, eggplant
varieties have long been appreciated in traditional
communities in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and
Mediterranean coast, and, more recently, the
Americas. With their often large and showy purple
or white blooms and velvety leaves, eggplants are
ornamental enough to grow in the border or even
in the front yard! Heat-loving plants, eggplants
are best started indoors about 8 weeks before
the last frost date of spring. Be sure to set out
transplants only after carefully hardening them to
outdoor conditions, and only after warm weather
has really arrived.
