The shiny fruits of eggplants are among the prettiest things your veggie garden can offer in summer and the colour of Violetta Di Firenze makes it a truly special heirloom. This Italian eggplant variety has rounded, ribbed, violet-purple fruits with flashes of white, and when picked young, is tender and sweet in flavour. Known for its heavy cropping, Violetta Di Firenze is a winner that's stood the test of time.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Sow your seeds in spring after the last frosts, or get a head start on your crop by sowing in containers about two months earlier. You will only cover them with about 5mm of medium, so keep them moist.

    How to Harvest

    Pick your eggplants when they are a shiny, waxy white. When they lose their shine, they are overripe. Use a pair of scissors or secateurs, and leave a short piece of stem attached to the fruit.
