These eggplants are longer in shape and ivory in color. Although this plant takes about 55 days to mature, the fruit can be picked as soon as they’re three to four inches long to be used as “baby” vegetables. Gretel eggplants are nearly seedless and need the same growing conditions as all types of eggplant, which means full sun and evenly moist soil. The fertilizer should be added during planting and later when the plant starts to flower. When ready to be picked, the plant should be seven inches long by 2.5 inches wide.
