Rosa Bianca Eggplant starts out with beautiful lavender blooms that produce rosy, pink oval-shaped fruit. It has a creamy consistency and a never bitter, delicate flavor in 8 inches of culinary goodness.
Transplant after the danger of frost has passed when the soil is thoroughly warm. Eggplants are heavy feeders. Fertilize with 2-3 tablespoons of ammonium nitrate per 10 feet of row after the first harvest and every 3-4 weeks after that. Classic Eggplant matures in 76 days. Other varieties average 65-85 days. At harvest, fruit should be large, shiny and uniform in color. When the side of the fruit is pressed slightly with thumbnail and an indentation remains, the fruit is ripe.
