Details

Grow Rosa Bianca for its beauty: its softball-sized, rounded, only slightly elongated fruit are spectacular. Or, grow it for its taste: it is among the most delicately flavored of eggplants, custard-like and not at all bitter when fully roasted. Whatever your reason, you will not be disappointed.

Number of Seeds 25 seeds
Spacing in Row 24 inches
Spacing Between Rows 30 to 36 inches
Planting Depth ¼ inch
Days to Germination 10 to 21 days
Days to Maturity 80 days from transplant
Height at Maturity 24 to 36 inches
Width at Maturity 18 to 24 inches
Sow indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, then transplant 24" apart 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.
