Prosperosa Eggplant

Mild-Flavored Italian Heirloom


Large, round, pleated fruits are deep purple with hints of cream near the stem. The Italian heirloom variety has a mild flavor and tender white flesh, making it a favorite for eggplant parmigiana and other specialty dishes. Its flesh is slow to discolor when sliced.

Start eggplant seeds indoors about 8-10 weeks before night temperatures are above 55 degrees. Plants may be set outdoors after night temperatures are above 55 degrees. Approx. 20 seeds per pkt. 75 DAYS.
