Growing Heirloom Eggplant - Diamond
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
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.”
