Eggplant Japanese Konasu OP - Asian Vegetable
A tiny, bite-sized, rounded eggplant that has a shiny dark purple skin that looks almost onyx in color. The calyx is also a purplish-black, and beneath the tender skin is white flesh.. Maturity: Approx. 60 days
Culture: Start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date (or 8 weeks before expected transplanting date). Keep soil warm until emergence. Seeds will not germinate in cool soil and planting out too early may affect plant vigor. Harden off plants carefully before transplanting. Prepare fertile, well drained soil. Plant in late spring/ summer (when soil temperatures at least 60°F) in a very warm and sunny location. Eggplants are heavy feeders so use a balanced fertilizer. Too much nitrogen will produce lush foliage and few fruits.
