Eggplant 'Listada De Gandia'

A stunning Spanish heirloom with showy lavender and white craquelure stripes, that's early to fruit, productive and exquisitely beautiful. Originally from from the Gandia region in the province of Valencia on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, many have tried to claim it as their own, and there is certainly no debating it's popularity world-wide. There is no need to peel the 15-20cm, almost seedless fruit with fine-textured flesh. Yields 3.5kg per plant.

How to grow

Eggplants require more heat than tomatoes, but similsr conditions, and being slow growing, require a long, hot growing season. In frost free areas, eggplants can be treated as perennials, producing a few fruit for a few seasons. Their stiff branches will need staking in order to support the weight of the fruit. For maximum yield, pick the fruit as soon as it is ripe, when the skin is easily indented when light pressure is applied.
