55 days from transplanting. A breeding breakthrough extraordinaire. Hansel F1 is the first eggplant that lets you choose when you want to harvest it. The glossy, dark purple, mild sweet fruits are ready at 2 inches, yet keep their tender texture and rich flavour as they grow, so you can harvest them at any time up to about 10 inches or so. The 55-day harvest time is when you can pick the fruit at 2 inches for baby veg, a gourmet treat. But several weeks later, as it gets bigger and bigger on the vine, these long, slender eggplants will still be just as delicious. Nearly seedless, they are great for frying or baking.
Expect the fruit to arise in clusters of 3 to 6 on very compact plants just 3 feet high and 2 1/2 feet wide. Stake or cage them to hold up their huge bounty of fruit, then sit back and enjoy eggplant fresh from the garden whenever you like, not when nature dictates.
Hansel won a 2008 All-America Selection and is certain to become the popular favourite among eggplant lovers everywhere.
