Little Finger Eggplant Seedling
Little Finger eggplant seedling.
Great for grilling! Little Fingers Eggplant is an Asian heirloom that yields gorgeous dark purple fruits. Can be harvested small — 3- to 4-inches long — or left to grow without losing its texture or superior flavor. Very productive!
Transplant outside after the soil has warmed. Space plants 18-24 inches apart in raised beds or double rows 2-3 feet apart. Plants prefer full sun and fertile soil with lots of organic matter.
To harvest large fruits, remove most of the side shoots and select two or three fruits to develop on one plant. For smaller fruits, allow the plants to develop naturally. Harvest while fruit is young and shiny for best flavor. Cut fruits from the plants with one inch of stem attached.
