Solanum melongena

Snowy is a smooth snow-white fruit with medium- thick skin & a delicate sweet flavor. This unusual variety produces tubular fruits, snowy white skin & flesh. It is a productive variety that yields medium-sized fruits 20 to 25cm long. The texture is firmer & meatier than most, holding up well in cooking & handling. The upright, sturdy plants are easy to grow & well-adapted to many growing conditions. Height is 55cm & a spread of 45cm. They are well suited to growing in containers & will grow easily in a greenhouse or tunnel. 72 days from transplant.

Plant eggplant seed 2.5cm apart in pots or seed trays and cover with 12mm of fine soil, well pressed down When the plants are 5 to 7.5cm tall, transplant in rows 60 – 90cm apart, spacing plants 60cm apart in the row. Cut the ripe eggplant instead of pulling from plant to avoid plant injury. Keep moist and not wet. Fertilize every 2-4 weeks.
