Eggplant ‘Gretel’ (AAS Winner)

2009 AAS Winner. Plants grow to 36 to 42″ in height and 24 to 36″ in width, producing clustered, 3 to 4″ fruits that are very sweet and firm. Tender skins and few seeds make this an excellent choice for grilling and sauteing. Harvest frequently to encourage setting throughout the season.

Harvest when the skin of the fruit is shiny and unwrinkled. Don’t wait too long to harvest! As soon as the skin does not rebound to gentle pressure from your finger, it’s ripe. When harvesting, do not pull the fruit (as it won’t come off). Cut the fruit with a sharp knife or pruning shears close to the stem, leaving about an inch of it attached.

Dull skin indicates that an eggplant is overripe.
