Solanum melongena (75 days) F-1 hybrid. An eggplant sui generis as the architectural work of its Catalan namesake Antoni Gaudí. Dark purple 7–8" tapered half-long bell-shaped fruit with a thornless light green calyx. Early and productive in two very different Maine trial seasons—the first, a cool meh of a year, then 2020 with its heat and drought. Lovely harvests both years, with fruits holding deep full color into advanced maturity. Adorable and delish at 4–5" baby size. The breeder notes that under stress thorns may form, but in two years with sub-optimal conditions, we’ve waded through the eggplant patch without a single baba gan-ouch! Our trials were in the field, but it’s also recommended for high tunnels.
Sow indoors 1/4" deep, 2" apart. The minimum germination temperature is 60°; the optimal range 75–90°. Keep near 80°. Transplant early June, 2' apart, in rows 2-3' apart. Picture used with permission. This variety is new for us and pics will be replaced by our own later in the season.
Shipping and Combined Shipping
NYCfigs ships on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
We never 'pass the savings' of expensive shipping charges to the customer and always ship as economically as possible. Sometimes this becomes a juggling act between cost-of-goods vs. cost-of-container vs. shipment size vs. shipping cost vs. margins. With combined shipping, it's all in the packing and we'll always find the most inexpensive shipping method available. But there are times when it's impossible to ship economically and we'll always let you know before paying. The shipping for all items sold by NYCfigs will combine automatically with all other items purchased from NYCfigs. Items that ship free can't be discounted. In the rare instance of excess shipping charges, NYCfigs will refund after the invoice is paid. This ensures your items are received in a timely manner.
