This unique variety produces small (about 15cm) white fruits. For highest pruduction keep the aubergine plants under cover in your greenhouse or polytunnel; ideally above 20 Celsius at all times. A very popular variety in asian cooking. Aubergines are high in potassium, folates and magnesium and a good source of Vitamins E and K.
Sow seeds about 0.5 cm deep in a good, free-draining, moist compost, for best results sow the aubergine seeds as early as your chilli seeds - February-March. Place in a heated propagator, on a windowsill, or seal the seed tray into a polythene bag at a temperature of 18-21 Celsius until after germination, which takes 10 -14 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into individual pots and grow in slightly cooler conditions. Finally, pot into larger containers or 2 plants into a growbag, or outdoors once plants have been acclimatised to conditions and after all risk of frost has passed.
Grow under cover, in the greenhouse, conservatory or outside in well- drained, rich soil, in a sunny location. Once first flowers have set, feed and water regularly with tomato feed. Harvest regularly to encourage further flower and fruit production.
