Louisiana Long Green Eggplant Seeds (Organic)

Louisiana Long Green Eggplant Seeds (Organic)

Southern Summer's Best

Louisiana Long Green Eggplant, a variety with Southern roots, originates from Louisiana, USA. This elongated heirloom eggplant is renowned for its prolific nature and its adaptation to warmer climates, thriving in the humid and hot conditions characteristic of the Southern United States.

The plant boasts a distinctive appearance, characterized by its slender, elongated fruits that resemble oversized chili peppers rather than the traditional bulbous eggplant shape. The fruits typically grow to around 8-10 inches in length and have a glossy, deep green skin. Their flesh is tender with fewer seeds compared to other eggplant varieties, offering a mild, sweet flavor that's less bitter than its larger counterparts.

When planting Louisiana Long Green from seed, it flourishes best in well-draining, fertile soil under full sunlight exposure. It's recommended to start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date to ensure a head start on the growing season. Once seedlings are sturdy enough, transplant them outdoors to a sunny location after the risk of frost has passed. The optimal temperature for cultivation ranges between 70°F to 85°F (21°C to 29°C). Consistent watering, adequate spacing, and regular fertilization can encourage healthy growth and a bountiful harvest.

This eggplant variety is a versatile ingredient in Southern cuisine, perfect for grilling, frying, or incorporating into stews and casseroles. Its slender form and delightful taste make it a preferred choice for those seeking a milder eggplant flavor with a touch of sweetness.

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.
