HOW TO GROW EGGPLANT

Start indoors 8–10 weeks before last frost, plant out 2–3 weeks after last frost. Requires bottom heat for good germination. Pot up to 3-4” pots when first true leaves develop, bury to first leaves. If starts are grown in a greenhouse with shade cloth, harden off in full sun 3-4 days before transplanting after warm weather has settled. Like melons, Eggplant is a heat loving plant and is particularly sensitive to arrested growth. It needs steady unchecked growth to produce good yields. When saving seeds, fermentation is not necessary and may be harmful to the viability of the seed. Soil pH 5.1-8.5. Hardiness zones 5. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of transplant. Federal germination standard: 60%. Usual seed life 4–5 years. Average 6,000 seeds per ounce.
