Details

Eggplants can be a trying crop to grow, but Apple Green is a good, reliable, fast-growing variety that is about as easy as it gets for growers in the Northeast. They're also extremely delicious, with a very mild flavor and a creamy eggplant texture. Even those who profess not to like eggplant often find this variety appealing.
Number of Seeds 50 seeds
Spacing in Row 18 to 24 inches
Spacing Between Rows 36 inches
Planting Depth ¼ inch
Days to Germination 7 to 14 days
Days to Maturity 70 from transplant
Height at Maturity 24 to 36 inches
Width at Maturity 24 to 36 inches
Sow indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, then transplant once danger of frost has passed and soil is warm--usually 2-3 weeks after last frost. Cover immediately with row cover, as flea beetles love to devour eggplant leaves. Eggplants want heat; choose your sunniest spot for them. Give them ample water, drip irrigation is best. Harvest when fruit have reached 4-6" in diameter and prepare like any Italian eggplant.
