HOW TO GROW AUBERGINE PURPLE FROM SEEDS

Start Aubergine Purple seeds indoors six to nine weeks before the last frost is expected. It is best to begin them indoors and transplant them outdoors once the weather has warmed up. Soak the eggplant seeds overnight before germinating them. Place the seeds in a small container and cover them completely with water. Drain the water after the seeds have sat overnight. Fill seed trays with loose, fine-textured growing medium. Germinating eggplant seeds in your favourite soilless growing medium will yield the best results. Press 2-3 eggplant seeds in the growing medium with your fingers in each seed container. Cover the seeds with 1cm of soil, mist, or sprinkle water over the seeds. 

CARE FOR AUBERGINE PURPLE AFTER GERMINATION

Relying on the temperature, they are kept at; it can take from five days to two weeks for the seeds to germinate. You can pot up your seedlings into bigger pots when they are about 3 inches tall. It would help if you aimed to finish your aubergine plants in a four-inch pot or larger. It would help keep the potted seedlings indoors until the outdoor temperature reached at least 25 degrees Celsius. For an eggplant to thrive and grow in a garden, it needs very high temperatures. Plant your eggplants in an area with more than six hours of sunlight per day if possible. Eggplant grows best in healthy, well-drained soil. They thrive in a growing environment that gives them space. You can use bamboo sticks or other suitable stakes to hold your plants. 

USES AND HEALTH BENEFITS OF AUBERGINE PURPLE

You can grill, stuff, roast, serve it in soups, stews, and on kabobs, or use it in curries and stir-fries. It is a nutritious, low-calorie, fat-free, and sodium-free vegetable. It provides additional nutrients like potassium, magnesium, folic acid, vitamin B6 and A, and as well as fiber. Vitamins A and C act as antioxidants and protect your cells from damage. Additionally, it is high in natural plant chemicals called polyphenols, which may help your body process sugar more effectively if you have diabetes.
