Renee's EXCLUSIVE - Perfect for containers or small space gardens, compact Little Prince produces an abundance of glossy, 3 to 4 inch oval fruits borne in shiny clusters on pretty plants with velvety leaves and lavender blossoms. This productive variety is a real edible landscaping dynamo that will keep you well supplied with tasty fresh eggplants. Best of all, these curvaceous fruits have tender, glossy skins and succulent flesh that is never bitter or seedy and absolutely delicious in every favorite eggplant dish. Maturity 65 Days (approx. 28 seeds/pack)
Transplant In Pots: Plant 1 to a pot 12 inches across and deep, or plant several seedlings 8 inches apart in larger containers at least 16 to 18 inches across and deep.
In Garden Beds: Amend soil with compost or aged manure, then plant in full sun 2 feet apart.
GROWING NOTES: Transplant outdoors only when nights are securely above 55° (13°C). For containers, always use new, high quality potting mix. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots and mulch them well. Feed regularly every few weeks throughout the season with good all-purpose fertilizer.
HARVEST AND USE: Pick often from productive plants when fruits size up glossy and firm-fleshed and before skins get dull. Enjoy these handy-sized eggplants halved or in thick slices sautéed with garlic and herbs or grilled to succulence on the barbeque.
