Mitoyo Eggplant


75 days | Another amazing eggplant, Mitoyo is tender, sweet and bitter free. This paired with Ping Tung are my eggplant staples in the garden. This one may look a little like you typically supermarket variety but I promise you it is nothing of the sort. Due to the more oval shape of Mitoyo this is the one I tend to use for grilling and those Eggplant Parmesan dishes. Although it is also recommended for fresh use. I even preserved slices of these in garlic, vinegar and olive oil this year!



Such beautiful plants, I scatter them all throughout the garden. They make beautiful specimens for edible landscaping and patio containers. If planted in a row, space them 18 inches apart. In that case, I’ll make that a double row, spacing them 2 feet from one another. They’ll fill in the space between, and you can pick from either side.

If you choose to use them in your containers or landscaping, they look absolutely beautiful planted with your favorite varieties of pole bean and ornamental vining crop. I love them combined with oregano and sedum ground covers.

Eggplants prefer full sun and I typically wait to plant them out until the last week of May. They are not frost/cold hardy so make sure you plant them out when it warms. Pick what’s left of your eggplant before the first fall frost.
