Grow this heirloom in patio containers
Days to Maturity: 80 from transplantHere it is—your must-grow eggplant this season! Turkish Orange is an African species (the purple and white varieties we are more familiar with are Asian) with an incredibly rich, non-bitter flavor and a charming round shape. Thats not to mention the orange color with stripes!Turkish Orange sets fruits the size of tennis balls. Unlike many heirloom vegetables, it is a very heavy producer—expect a long and fruitful season of 3-inch-diameter eggplants from very compact plants you can grow in containers as well as the garden.Even though Turkish Orange is always photographed in its full deep orange regalia, the fruit is actually best picked when the fruits begin to turn from green to cream. They may not look as pretty on the chopping board at this stage, but their sweet succulence is at its height. However, they are so charming as they turn orange and the stripes intensify that you may be tempted to grow one Turkish Orange plant just as an ornamental. Why not? You can enjoy the pretty fruit for weeks, then feed the compost pile!You need never salt this eggplant. It is far sweeter than Asian varieties, with a tender bite that youll fall in love with. Use it just as you would its purple and white cousins in all kinds of dishes.The best part is that this plant is petite enough to grow in patio containers. Even if you dont have space for even one more plant in the sunny garden, Turkish Orange will grow happily in a tall planter, tub, or other large container. It reaches 18 to 22 inches high, and has much larger yields than big Asian eggplants twice or three times its size.Turkish Orange is also known as Scarlet Eggplant or Ethiopian Eggplant. It was featured in a recent story on National Public Radio, so American gardeners and cooks are beginning to request it by name. Be the first on your block to grow this super-easy, super-delicious new vegetable.Begin seeds indoors 8 to 10 weeks before planning to set out. Eggplant loves heat, so the seeds germinate best at about 75 degrees Fahrenheit—use a heat mat if possible beneath your Bio Dome or seed flat, or find another source of bottom heat if your house is cooler than this. Cover the seeds lightly if sowing in a seed flat; if using the Bio Dome, just drop one seed in the pre-drilled hole in each bio sponge. They will germinate in about 1 to 2 weeks.The seedlings crave heat and light; give them all you can (grow lights are wonderful, but kitchen fluorescents work well too if the seedlings are placed directly beneath them), and feed them weekly. They are ready to transplant whenever they have at least 2 sets of true leaves, but wait until the outside weather is thoroughly warm before transplanting into garden or patio container. Turkish Orange is a heavy bearer, so you might want to stake the plant to hold up the big bounty of fruit.
