When to Plant:
- Eggplant seeds germinate at temperatures between 60 and 95 degrees F.
- Most areas will require seeds to be started indoors, 8-10 weeks before your last frost in the spring.
How to Grow:
- Sow eggplant seeds small pots, ¼ inch deep.
- Water, cover loosely with a plastic bag or a plastic seedling flat cover to retain moisture
- Place them in a warm area, as a good amount of heat if preferred.
- Keep the seedlings moist, and you’ll likely see condensation on the plastic. If not, lightly mist the seeds to prevent dislodging them.
- They can germinate without extra heat, but will take additional time.
- Germination takes generally 7-14 days, and then you’ll remove the plastic and place the pots under bright lights or by a bright window.
- Transplanting to larger pots is sometimes necessary before you’ll be ready to bring them outside.
- Continue to keep them moist as they grow for the next 8-10 weeks until soil temperatures outside reach about 60 degrees F.
- Harden off the seedlings, and then plant in your garden.
- Eggplants may require staking to keep them upright while growing.
When to Harvest:
- Harvest when skin looks glossy. At this point the fruit will likely stop growing larger – about 2-3 months after initial planting, depending on variety.
- Cut the eggplant off its vine with some shears. It should only have a short stem once removed.
