Eggplant, Rosa Bianca: Harvest Question
Wednesday, August 17, 2011 9:52 AM
I have a Rosa Bianca eggplant in a
container. It is fruiting quite a bit but I don't know when to harvest
it. The eggplants began as a deep shocking purple and then they turned
to a creamy lavender and now they are almost all ivory. They are the
size of about 2 fists. When I squeeze the flesh, it is still hard, and
it does not give at all. The skin is not very shiny but today I noticed
that there are some brown, crackly blemish streaks in the skin which
makes me think that maybe they are already too mature. This photo was
taken on August 1st:
but now they are much more of an ivory color. Do I need to wait longer
or did I already miss the boat?
