Blaukönigin is one of the earliest aubergine varieties and surprises in July with a lush and prolonged harvest. The variety is ideal for outdoor cultivation, but can also be grown in containers and on the balcony. The compact, rather small variety (heights around 60cm) brings reliable yields even outside the wine-growing regions and convinces with its medium-sized (about 150g) purple fruits and good plant health.
The taste is pleasantly intense, but not bitter. The fruits cook and fry wonderfully.
Overall, the variety is very undemanding, requires no support or intensive fertilization and is therefore ideal for the home garden.
