DWARF EGGPLANT - Small fruit & dwarf plant

For containers or bedding plant sales.

CULTURE: Sow seeds indoors from Mar. 1st. through Apr. 1st.Use moist Jiffy Mix or sand (not soil) 1/4 in/6 mm deep; cover lightly and keepvery warm @ 72°F/22°C, for 7-10 days. Use bottom heat from electric cables -under seedling trays or pots to encourage faster germination and good seedlinggrowth. If seeds are slow to germinate - conditions may be too cool (below65°F/18°C) - it could take up to 3 weeks to produce useable seedlings. Afterseeds germinate place trays or pots in a bright sunny location with 6 to 8hours of sunlight per day. Transplant seedlings about 4-5 weeks later when trueleaves are 3/8 in/10 mm in diameter. Plant the same depth as they were in theseedling pots or trays. Eggplant varieties sometimes are very sensitive to impropertransplanting methods like cold drafts, too little water or cold water use ontender seedlings. Grow plants warm @ 75°F/24°C minimum indoor temperatures.Control damping off with Captan and apply fungicide so plant leaves are moist.Reduce growing temperatures to 65-70°F/15-18°C as seedlings mature in late Mayor early June when night temps are above 45°F/7°C. Plants will lose theirblooms on chilly nights so container plants may have to become lightly coveredat night if temps suddenly drop. Feed plants once every 5-6 weeks with a well-balancedcommercial fertilizer. Harvest small fruit. Over mature fruit become tough withbitter seeds. Remove or spray for Colorado potato beetles or smaller fleabeetles as they appear. Plant dwarf types in gallon containers and regulartypes outdoors in rows 24 in/60 cm apart and 3 ft/90 cm apart in the row.
