Eggplant – Rosa Bianca
Solanum melongena

This tender heirloom annual is an Italian variety with a mild flavor and creamy consistency.  Because of the superb flavor of the fruit, this variety is considered gourmet.  Fruits are about 4″-6″ long and 4″-5″ in diameter.


Suggested Planting Requirements:
    Soil should be fertile, well drained and rich in organic matter, with a pH of 5.8 to 6.8.  Eggplant also needs a lot of calcium, so add lime to the soil before you plant.  Southern California growers should be careful of over-liming an area.  Plant eggplants in warm area sheltered from winds.

Growing Recommendations: Transplant to the garden when all danger of frost has passed and the soil temperature has reached 60°F. Eggplants can be fairly drought tolerant but do well in optimal moisture levels.

Harvesting & Storage: Fruits can be harvested anytime after half of the mature size, but don’t wait too long, over-ripe fruit is tough and bitter. Eggplants do not store well and should be used soon after harvest.
