  1. A Description of Eggplant

    History: Eggplants originated in India and have been grown there for thousands of years. After spreading to Africa and Europe, they were introduced to England in 1596. They were not hugely popular in that country because the climate was not conducive to growing them. Cultivation: eggplants are slow growers and heat-lovers, meaning that they need to be started early indoors to produce fruit. Sow seed 1/4" deep in soil-less mix, 7-8 weeks before the last frost. Harden off & transplant to a warm, protected, sunny location, when soil has warmed, 12" apart. Companions: beans encourage growth and deter the potato beetle; thyme & marigold deter pests.
