If picked at a green stage they are unusually attractive and very tasty. If left until fully ripened (red) they turn slightly bitter. Can also be used for flower arrangements

5. Eggplant THAI ROUND GREEN (15 Seeds) (V-452) - This south-east Asian variety is very popular in Thai and Vietnamese cooking and is a common home garden vegetable. Producing round light green white variegated striped fruit about 5cm in diameter may be eaten raw but often included in a variety of dishes, particularly stir-fry. Harvest - 80 days

Begin seeds indoors 8 to 10 weeks before planning to set out in early Spring. Eggplant loves heat, so the seeds germinate best at about 24 degrees C - use a heat mat if possible, beneath or seed flat, or find another source of bottom heat if your house is cooler than this. Cover the seeds lightly if sowing in a seed flat; They will germinate in about 1 to 2 weeks.

The seedlings crave heat and light; give them all you can (grow lights are wonderful, but kitchen fluorescents work well too if the seedlings are placed directly beneath them) and feed them weekly. They are ready to transplant whenever they have at least 2 sets of true leaves but wait until the outside weather is thoroughly warm before transplanting into a garden or patio container.
