Eggplant, Noong Ta Klong Pea (Organic)
Solanum torvum. Green. 90 days.
Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots when they have their first two true leaves. Transplant into the garden after danger of frost has passed, typically late May in western Oregon.
Collect seeds from fruit that are past typical harvest stage, ripened to a dull yellowish color. Place seeds in a jar then add water to float non-seed debris. Decant and rinse seeds to clean. Dry seed before storage. For seed purity, isolate from other eggplant varieties by 500 feet.
