Solanum melongena var esculentum

80 days — 'Long Purple' is an Italian-type eggplant. The plants reach twenty four to thirty inches and produce four or more fruits that are dark purple, two and one half inches in diameter and eight to ten inches in length.

Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 25 seeds.
Hard to grow
These are nice, tender egg plants. The plants produce a lot of fruit - it doesn't seem possible considering the size of the plant itself. Unfortunately, they are temperature sensitive. They need warm conditions to germinate in the spring. Then are sensitive to very hot weather if they are not watered well - they will drop flowers. I believe this is true for all egg plants, so do your research before trying to grow these. Worth the effort!

Great producer and tastes wonderful!
I have grown this eggplant two years in a row & couldn't be happier! I've had no pest problems & I don't use any chemicals on my veggies. It's a great producer, requires little maintenance and tastes wonderful! The size is perfect for my needs. Will definitely grow this year after year.
