Eggplant Japanese Konasu OP - Asian Vegetable
An open pollinated, Japanese variety that has excellent quality. Shiny, black fruits have a purple calyx and mature 9-10" long with a mild, delicate flavor. A very vigorous plant that is good for open field growing as well as home gardening. Relatively late maturing plant has an upright growth habit.. 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.
