Cultivation advice


Sow indoors, 0.5 cm deep, from January through March! Keep the temperature at 24-30°C during germination and around 20°C after sprouting. Lower the temperature successively to temper the plants before setting out.


Keep 5-7 cm between the plants during the pre-cultivation and then 50-60 cm of mutual distance when setting them out. The egg plant can be topped when it is 25 cm tall, if one wants a bushier plant. Allow 3 branches to develop!


Pick the fruits regularly to stimulate further setting of fruit. They keep for a few weeks in a cool place. Aubergine is eaten fried, roasted, baked, raw, boiled etc etc.
