Millionaire Eggplant Seeds

Royal Purple Delicacy

Millionaire Eggplant, a revered cultivar originating from Asia, stands out for its remarkable qualities and rich cultural history. Within the Millionaire Eggplant family, there aren't distinct subspecies, but this cultivar is celebrated for its robust growth and exceptional culinary attributes.

The plant typically grows to a height of 2 to 3 feet, showcasing sturdy stems and vibrant, broad green leaves. Its aesthetic appeal is enhanced by the striking, elongated, and glossy purple fruits with a characteristic bulbous end, adding a touch of elegance to gardens and landscapes.

Taste-wise, Millionaire Eggplant offers a rich, creamy texture and a mild, delicate flavor with a slightly sweet undertone. The fruit's flesh is tender when cooked, making it a versatile ingredient in various cuisines, especially in Mediterranean and Asian dishes.

When planting from seed, Millionaire Eggplant thrives in well-draining, fertile soil and requires ample sunlight. Begin by starting seeds indoors, maintaining a warm temperature around 70-85°F (21-29°C) for germination. Once seedlings have developed several true leaves, transplant them into the garden, ensuring a spacing of 18 to 24 inches between plants to allow for proper growth and airflow.

Consistent watering, especially during dry periods, promotes healthy growth and fruit development. Additionally, providing support, like stakes or cages, helps the plant manage the weight of the fruits as they mature, ensuring they grow undisturbed and maintain their characteristic appearance and flavor. With its striking appearance and versatile culinary uses, Millionaire Eggplant remains a popular choice for gardeners and food enthusiasts alike.

Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Eggplants prefer moderately fertile, well-drained loamy soil supplemented with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Eggplants require heavy water and warm soil.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost. Sow seeds directly in warm climates only. Because eggplants need plenty of water and warm conditions to grow, production accessories such as drip irrigation, plastic mulch, and row covers are a good idea. All eggplants are chill sensitive.

Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting early when fruits are half their mature size; young fruits are more tender and early picking will increase yields. Cut the fruit from the plant with shears leaving some stem attached.
