Eggplant, Rosa Bianca: Harvest Question

From: Jordan
Sent on: 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: (http://jordanrogoff.tumblr.com/post/8437803903/the-pride-and-joy-of-my-garden-i-started-dozens) but now they are much more of an ivory color. Do I need to wait longer or did I already miss the boat?
