Eggplant, Diamond (Organic)


Solanum melongena. Black. 65-70 days.
Excellent standard eggplant for high yield and quality in organic growing conditions. Nice, elongated black globes are a little smaller than the hybrids but better suited for northern climates. Fairly short plants set fruit in clusters and produce well in less than optimal conditions. Diamond was our farm’s preferred variety for market and CSA. Brought to this country by the Seed Savers Exchange from Ukraine in 1993.

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well watered. Transplant seedlings into 4” pots when they have their first two true leaves. Transplant into the garden after danger of frost has past, typically late May in western Oregon.
