Listada de Gandia Eggplant Seeds (Organic)

Gourmet Striped Beauty

Listada de Gandia Eggplant, originating from Spain, is a captivating heirloom variety known for its ornamental appearance and delightful taste. Its name pays homage to the region of Gandia in Valencia, where it is believed to have originated. This eggplant species belongs to the Solanaceae family and thrives in warm climates.

The plant flaunts lush foliage and striking fruits. The eggplants exhibit an unusual elongated oval shape, displaying a vibrant color palette of purple with white streaks or stripes running along the skin, giving them an aesthetic appeal reminiscent of a watercolor painting. The medium-sized fruits typically mature to about 6-8 inches in length, boasting a glossy, tender skin.

Regarding taste, Listada de Gandia offers a mild, slightly sweet flavor with creamy flesh, making it a versatile ingredient in various culinary dishes. It's ideal for grilling, roasting, frying, or adding to stews and casseroles.

When cultivating Listada de Gandia from seed, it thrives best in well-drained, fertile soil with plenty of sunlight. Start the seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost, then transplant them into the garden after the danger of frost has passed. The ideal temperature for growth ranges between 70°F to 85°F (21°C to 29°C). Ensure the plants receive consistent watering and sufficient space to spread, promoting healthy growth and abundant fruit production throughout the growing season.

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.
