Seed Swaps

Eggplant Summer 2019

23 Apr 2019

I’ve planted the following varieties with seeds from Johnny’s….

1. Machiaw: Slender, Asian-type fruit with deep-pink color and tender flesh. (2 large and 1 tiny plants). Avg. 9-10" long by 7/8-1" diameter fruits.

2. Hansel: Solid purple, specialty eggplant. Start harvesting the abundant fruits when they are only 3–4" long by 3/4–1" diameter. The compact, 24–36" plants produce tender, dark-purple fruit in clusters for easy harvesting. Hansel is non-bitter and perfect for grilling or slicing thin onto pizza. (3 plants)

3. Fairy Tale: Purple-and-white mini eggplant. Small like the Hansels (3 plants)

4. Dancer: Deep-pink Italian type. Semi-cylindrical fruits are mid-sized (7-8" long by 3-4" diameter), mild, and nonbitter. Plants are strong and high yielding. Popular in Puerto Rico. (3? Plants)
