Large Oval Celadon Eggplant SEEDS Heirloom – Rare Not Bitter Variety – Solanum melongena

Non-GMO, non-hybrid, open-pollinated, no chemically treated, heirloom seeds. This is my favorite eggplant variety that I have grown for years. The entire fruit can be used, including seeds as there are only a few, and the skin is very thin and not bitter! It is a short-living perennial that grows large oval fruit throughout the year. Overall, eggplant has a high nutritional value and is an excellent source of phenolic acid, antioxidants, and other vitamins, and minerals. This is a hardy variety that can be grown as a perennial in subtropics and tropics, and in other parts of Australia if you grow it in a pot and protect it from frost during winter.

The price is for 10 fresh seeds coming from the eggplants I grow in my food forest. Naturally grown, untreated, non-GMO heirloom seeds.

Planting and growing tips:

  • Start in a pot or tray to ensure success. Keep moist, not wet, until the seeds sprout.
  • Replant into individual pots when the seedlings have 2-3 leaves.
  • Eggplant is an easy-to-grow plant, that loves full sun or semi-shade, and not much watering.
  • Replant into its final position or to a larger pot at the latest when you see some roots coming out of the pot’s bottom holes. The better the soil, the quicker and better it will grow.
  • It doesn’t like to sit in water so a well-drained position is best. All our edibles grow happily and quickly in slightly raised garden beds.
  • Trimming occasionally promotes future growth.

Additional notes:

  • The seeds come from the mother plant, naturally grown with lots of love in my permaculture food forest in Pacific Haven QLD Australia. Sending within Australia only, not to NORFOLK ISLAND, NT, SA, TAS, or WA. Pick up by appointment only.
