Botanical Interests "Pumpkin on a Stick" Organic Ornamental Eggplant Seeds


Enlarge Image

An intriguing and fun heirloom that was introduced as an ornamental around 1879, Pumpkin on a Stick is actually an eggplant with clusters of fruit that look like miniature pumpkins. They are a great conversation piece--let visitors to your garden try to guess what type of plant can grow these cute little 'pumpkins' on vertical stalks. They are a wonderful addition to your fresh or dried cut flower displays in late summer and early autumn. Also called Red China or Scarlet Chinese eggplant, the bitter fruits are used in Asian cooking.

When to plant outside: (Starting indoors is best.) Transplant your seedlings outside 3-4 weeks after the average last spring frost and when soil temperatures are warm or when outside nighttime temperatures are at least 55 degrees F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 weeks before average last frost. Transplant seedlings outside in spring 3-4 weeks after the average last frost and when soil temperatures are warm or when outside nighttime temperatures are at least 55 degrees F. Some people plant eggplant when 'the oak leaves are fully developed'.

Special Germination Instructions: To germinate quickly, seed needs VERY warm soil temperatures, between 70 and 85 degrees. Either use a heating cable or cover the seed tray with a plastic bag to conserve warmth & moisture.
