Eggplant

 

Purple beauty 

Enza Zaden focuses on long, half-long and oval fruit types with a black fruit colour and a green calyx. We excel in fruit quality, strong calyxes, fruit firmness, shelf life, and a dark attractive fruit colour.  

Specialist activity 

Our research focusses on yield, quality and uniformity. Growers worldwide need high yielding varieties to enable them to optimise the profit of their crops. Growing eggplant is quite a specialist activity. Although in itself it is not a difficult crop to grow, it does however require knowledge and understanding of the modern varieties available.

Eggplant is grown largely in the Mediterranean markets, through the winter under non-heated protected conditions, and also quite widely in the open field during the summer months.
