***EGGPLANT GROWING GUIDE BELOW***

Eggplants are short-lived perennial vegetables, but are usually cultivated as annuals. Also known as aubergines, eggplants differ mainly in size, shape and color of the fruits. Eggplants are tropical and subtropical, requiring relatively high temperatures. Related crop include tomatoes, potatoes and peppers.

PLANTING

Start plants indoors 2 months before the soil warms up or buy nursery transplants just before planting.

Place 3 to 4 inch tall seedlings 24 to 30 inches apart in well-prepared beds.

Pinch out the terminal growing points for a bushier plant.

PLANT CARE

Stake plants over 24 inches tall.

Water well and apply a balanced fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season.

For bigger fruits, restrict to five or six per plant.

PESTS/DISEASES

Aphids

Spider Mites

Tomato Hornworms

Downy and Powdery Mildew

Eggplant fruit may not ripen properly due to cold temperatures, pest damage, or infertile soils.

HARVEST/STORAGE

Harvest 16 to 24 weeks after sowing when the skin of the fruit is shiny and unwrinkled.

Cut the fruit close to the stem, but leaving about an inch of it attached.

Eggplants can be stored for up to two weeks in humid conditions no lower than 50 degrees F.



All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
