Organic Listada di Gandia Eggplant
Abundant and tender, we love these delectable Italian Organic Listada di Gandia Eggplants for their exceptionally thin skin with gorgeous maroon stripes. Our favorites are the fruits harvested between 4 and 7 inches long and perfect for roasting and grilling. Straight off the grill, whole on a skewer, our young and dear friend Nola exclaimed, ‘eggplant is so much better than lollipops!’ and we quite agree.
At Fruition, we sow eggplant in soil blocks indoors 2 months before final frost, early April for us here in Zone 5, germinating them on heat mats with ease. Good light is essential: Younger, less stressed seedlings are healthier and more abundant than older, more stressed seedlings.
Eggplants are heavy feeders, so nourish them with nutrient-dense soil as well as fish and kelp emulsion for an abundant harvest.
