Growing Heirloom Eggplant - Diamond

Jan 19, 2013
Blog type:

I grew Diamond Eggplant last year with great success.  The plants grew about two feet tall and produced dark purple, teardrop-shaped fruits.

I grew them organically in raised beds, and they produced high yields and great taste.

This heirloom has a compact structure, and beautiful fruits that are 6-9 inches long. The fruits have a firm texture and are rarely bitter.  This early variety will mature in 70 days (from transplant).

Eggplants are a warm-season fruit.  For growing instructions, see my post titled
“Growing Eggplant.”

Diamonds are delicious roasted, and served as a side dish.  They are also great as a main dish.
I invite you to try my recipe for “Diamond Eggplant Parmesan.”
