75 days. [Heirloom from France about 1850.] This egg-shaped Italian beauty has 5-7 in. fruits, purple with irregular white stripes. A unique eggplant pleasing to both the eye and the palate. Seedlings of 'Listada de Gandia' are not as vigorous as our other varieties, but mature plants are drought-tolerant. Sets fruit well under high heat, though not as well in cold summers. Thin skin does not need to be peeled for cooking.
