Long Purple Eggplant Overview: The Long Purple Eggplant (Solanum melongena) is a popular vegetable known for its elongated shape, glossy deep-purple skin, and tender white flesh. This variety is visually appealing and boasts a mild, sweet flavor with a hint of nuttiness, making it perfect for various culinary uses. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, long purple eggplants are a healthy addition to any diet.

Days till Maturity: 70-80 days. Long Purple Eggplants typically take 70-80 days from germination to maturity. Therefore, with proper care, you can expect to harvest these mouthwatering eggplants throughout the summer and into the fall.

Planting Depth: ¼ inch. Plant the Long Purple Eggplant Seeds at a depth of ¼ inch to ensure successful germination. Cover the seeds lightly with soil and keep them evenly moist.

Plant Spacing: 24-36 inches apart. Space your Long Purple Eggplant plants 24-36 inches apart for optimal growth, allowing ample room to grow and develop their delicious fruits.

Germination: To germinate your Long Purple Eggplant Seeds, start them indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date. Maintaining a temperature of 70-85°F (21-29°C) ensures the soil remains consistently moist. Seedlings should emerge within 7-14 days.

Growing the Seeds: Once your seedlings have grown to at least 2-3 inches tall and have developed 2-3 true leaves, it's time to transplant them outdoors. Choose a location with well-draining soil and total sun exposure (at least 6 hours of sunlight daily). Harden off your seedlings by gradually exposing them to outdoor conditions for a week before transplanting. Keep the plants consistently watered and fed with a balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth.

When to Harvest: Your Long Purple Eggplants will be ready to harvest when they reach their mature size (about 8-10 inches long) and have a glossy, deep purple color. The skin should be firm yet slightly yielding to gentle pressure. Use a clean, sharp knife or pruner to cut the eggplants from the plant, leaving a small portion of the stem attached.
