Growing Long Purple Eggplant Seeds

  • Soak the seeds overnight before germinating them. Let the seeds sit overnight, then drain the water.
  • Eggplants need warmth, so it is best to start them indoors and transplant them once the weather is warm enough.
  • Fill seed trays with a fine, loose growing medium. Using your fingers, push 2-3 seeds into the growing medium in each cells.
  • Sprinkle water onto the surface and cover trays with a humidity dome.
  • Warmer temperatures will spur a quicker germination period.
  • Ideally, choose a spot in the garden that gets sun for more than 6 hours per day to plant your eggplants.
  • Pour a 2-inch layer of compost on top of the soil. Use the rake to mix it into the soil evenly.
  • Dig holes slightly larger than your seedlings’ roots, spaced 24–30 inches in all directions.
  • Mulching will help prevent the growth of weeds and keep your plants warm.
  • Use bamboo sticks or other suitable stakes to hold up your plants. As the plants grow, they will lean onto the stakes.
  • To thrive, eggplant need at least 1 inch of water per week. Aim for one weekly.
  • At the 16-week mark, start checking your eggplant crops to see if they are ready for harvesting. When the skin is shiny, cut off eggplants near the stem with sharp pruning shears.
