Best To Start Indoors In early spring, start indoors about 2 months before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 50-55F (10-13C) range. Sow seeds 1/4 in. deep and 1 in. apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist and warm 80-85F (27-30C) and provide a strong light source until ready to plant outside. When seedlings are 2 in. tall, transplant into deeper individual containers. Maintain at 70-75F (21-24C). Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Transplant 2 ft. apart into rich soil in full sun.

Growing Notes Don't transplant these heat-lovers outdoors until nights stay securely above 55F (13C). Prepare soil with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots and mulch well. Fertilize plants regularly, at least monthly, throughout the season.

Harvest and Use: Pick when fruits have sized up and are firm fleshed and glossy. Slice 1/2 in. thick, brush with olive oil and broil until tender. Then layer with a rich tomato sauce, fresh herbs and several cheeses to make Eggplant Parmesan. Bake whole in a hot oven, then scoop out flesh and mash with garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and chopped parsley for a savory dip to serve on toasted pita bread.
