Eggplant Seed Planting Information:

Eggplants do best in well-drained soil that has been enhanced with compost and manure. They thrive in high heat and high humidity areas. Plant your seeds indoors, 6 to 8 weeks before setting outside. When seedlings are 4" to 6" tall, transplant them into larger pots so roots can grow properly. Grow transplants at 50 F to 70 F.  Spring planting should occur 2 weeks after last frost. Protect the plants from frost and wind. Plants will not set fruit when nighttime temperatures fall below 65 F. Plants can grow 3 ft tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Water well during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro once a month. Side dress plants with compost and manure.

Harvest Tips:

Cut fruit from plant when they are fully mature and reach full color.
