Fengyuan Purple Eggplant Seeds

(Solanum melongena)

65 days. Open polinated. Long, thin, deep purple fruits are mild and have a thin skin that does not require peeling. Early to produce and easy to grow, we recomend this eggplant for northern gardeners. Also does very well for us in the hot, humid Ozarks. This variety is productive and is perfect for grilling and stir fries. Fruits can get quite large, but harvest young for the most tenderness. Produces over a long season. Provide support as the heavy load of fruits can pull the plant over.

Germinated at 84%.
