Black Shine, Hybrid

Black Shine, Hybrid
Seed #402
This Japanese hybrid eggplant has long fruit with black skin and a purple calyx. The shiny fruits have tender good quality flesh and grow over 8" long and weight over 8 oz. This extra early prolific producer is recommended for greenhouse and open field growing. Black Shine is very similar to Millionaire variety but fruit is heavier in weight.

Cultivation: Start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date (or 8 weeks before expected transplanting date). Keep soil warm until emergence. Seeds will not germinate in cool soil and planting out too early may affect plant vigor. Harden off plants carefully before transplanting. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Transplant in late spring/summer (soil temperatures at least above 60°F) in a very warm and sunny location. Eggplants are heavy feeders so use a balanced fertilizer. Too much nitrogen will produce lush foliage and few fruits.

Culinary tips: Use for grilling, stuffing, baking and pickling. Delicious when coated, baked or fried with miso. Makes excellent tempura.
