Transplant vines outdoors, once warm weather returns and soil temperature is around 60°F or greater. Place each plant 18-24" apart in rows that are 30-36" apart. Seeds will germinate within 70- 80 days in full sun. Give each plant about an inch of water per week.

Organic Purple Eggplant Harvesting Instructions:
Harvest eggplants when fruits have full shine and color and are about 8" to 10" long; however, eggplants can be harvested earlier when they around 4- 6". Just don't let them over grow or they become seedy and tough. Check maturity by pressing thumb against skin, if fruit does not spring back it is ready for harvest. Cut stems with pruning shears. Eggplants generally taste bitter, have spongy texture, and are delicious fried and breaded. Try stir-frying eggplants with your favorite vegetables, rices, spices, or meats.

Seed Purchase February 17, 2016
Reviewer: David Wolfe from Niles, MI United States  
These seeds arrived in sealed packages. They are just what I order and I am thrilled these packages will last 5 to 7 years. These are all heirloom seeds which I am very much in favor of growing in my garden.

Great seeds March 25, 2015
Reviewer: Carrie from Fort Washington, MD United States  
I was very satisfied with my order. It arrived quickly, shipping was very reasonable, and  the best part of patriot seeds is their packaging. I can reuse the seed packets for years to come, and the handy zip lock makes sure your seeds won't end up in the bottom of your bin. Plus, the seeds I have used from them always produce worthy plants.
