Organic black beauty aubergine seeds. Popular and reliable variety. Large, glossy, deep purple skinned oval fruit about 13cm long. Fruit holds quality and colour well after picking.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 seed 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.
