Turkish Orange Eggplant
80 days. This beautiful heirloom comes from Turkey. The 3” round fruit are best cooked when they are green to light orange. This variety has very sweet and flavorful flesh. It imparts a strong, rich flavor to any dish. The small plants yield well.
Contains 20 heirloom seeds
In spite of an unseasonably wet summer in middle FL and an onslaught of worms, these beauties are producing compact, brilliant orange fruit. I love the texture. It's softer than the Black Beauty or Long Purple, and even though the Turkish variety has tons of seeds, they cook down in stews and sauces, so you don't have to worry about removing them. I've been able to manage pests using only a neem oil and water solution.
