Eggplant Japanese Millionaire - Asian Vegetable
One of the most popular Japanese eggplant hybrids that are sold in markets, and wanted for home cooking. This variety is an extra early, productive, and upright grower. The brilliant black-purple fruit is long, growing to over 8" in length. The skin is particularly soft, and the interior flesh is nearly seedless. Good for greenhouse, open field and home garden growing. Maturity: Approx. 65 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.
