Eggplant, Orient Express
58 Days to Harvest
18”-24” Between Plants
An asian type eggplant, with slender 10” long fruit with a delicate flavor and tender texture. Vigorous plants that have high yields and are easier to grow in cooler climates than the bell type eggplants.
All eggplants need hot temperatures for good yields, and do well in this area with raised beds and/or black plastic. Floating row covers can also help raise the temperatures a bit and more importantly keep bugs out.
