Eggplant Long White 20 Seeds

Solanum melongena


This eggplant is high in fiber content and helps digestive function, and lowers risk of coronary heart disease. In addition, eggplant is a great source of potassium, Vitamin C, and protein.

A large bushy plant with attractive purple flowers. Can have spiky stems. Wear gloves to harvest fruit as the spikes on the calyx are sharp enough to break one's skin.

Needs a long season. Start under cover and plant out when frosts have finished.

Some varieties with slim, long fruit such as Asian Bride produce their fruit earlier. Mulch well and keep well watered. May need staking.
