An heirloom variety of white aubergine that is ideal for growing in the English weather (with shorter Summers than our Southern European friends) as it is early to mature, it is thought to orginate from France.

These lovely creamy white aubergines, both skin and flesh, have a mild flavour and firm texture reaching approximately 7" (18 cm) long in a teardrop shape with a thin skin. Despite the fact that this variety will produce lots of fruits quite quickly it is recommended to grow them in a greenhouse or poly tunnel as they don't like the cold (although this variety is more tolerant than some)!

Aubergines orginated from China and are a member of the Nightshade family and in history were thought to dangerous to eat, causing madness or even dead. Thankfully this is not the case!

  • Sow under protection two seeds per small pot March-April.
  • Germinate at a temperature of 70-80oF (21-27oC)
  • Transplant and grow on in larger pots when large enough to handle.
  • Ready to harvest in approximately 80 days.
  • For greenhouse or polytunnel growing plant out into larger pots, growbags or the ground when more established and provide a sturdy support.
  • For outdoor growing transplant into a sunny sheltered spotafter the risk of frost has passed; plant out 36" (90 cm) apart in rows 36" (90 cm) apart and provide a sturdy support.
