Jilo Morro Redondo Brazilian Eggplant

$ 3.99

(Solanum aethiopicum) One of the two predominant types of jilo (eggplant) found in Brazilian cuisine.  Jilo Morro Redondo, translated "round hill", is typically harvested while still green and may be fried or used in main dishes and soups.  Sautéed jilo and onions are also a popular snack in parts of Brazil.  Large plants can reach up to 5' tall, producing tremendous amounts of fruit over a single season.  Left on the plant, the dark green fruit will turn orange and finally red once fully ripened. Seed for this variety was generously provided by the USDA National Genetic Resources Program (NGRP).  70-75 days to maturity. 25 seeds per packet.

CULTURE: Sow seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost.  Allow up to 21 days for germination.  Rates will be improved by using a grower's heat mat.  Transplant outdoors once soil temps have reached 60 degrees.  Space transplants 18-24” apart in rows 36” apart.  Harvest fruit while skin is still glossy and tender.
