This early maturing Italian type eggplant has a long, narrow, very purple fruit with a distinct green calyx. The plants are strong, and hold up against frequent picking — which is good because the eggplants keep coming all summer. Fruits are elongated and cylindrical to 23cm (9”) long. Megal eggplant seeds produce plants that boast intermediate resistance to Tobacco Mosaic Virus. The ornamental plants are suitable for container growing. Although they benefit from the added heat of a raised bed or mulched soil, they will produce copiously in the field. Cool temperatures increase leafy growth, but prevent fruit set.
Matures in 60 days. (Hybrid seeds)
