The Heirloom Eggplant Little Fingers produces an abundance of slim long, dark purple, 6 to 8 inch fruits. Little Fingers is unique because of the fact that they can be harvested when they are no longer than your little finger, which makes this a great choice for containers and small or patio gardens. If left to grow longer, the flavor and thier sweet, mild taste are unaffected.
Plant in the spring, 3 to 4 weeks after the last average frost date. Warmer ground temperature promotes faster growth. If nighttime temperatures drop below 60 degrees, the fruit will not set. Eggplant prefers rich, deep, loose soils with large amounts of organic material. Provide 1 inch of water a week if it does not rain.
