EGGPLANT Amethyst - 15+ Heirloom Seeds
This is a compact, well-branching variety with vibrant, almost neon, purple fruits averaging around 80g and 20cm long. Amethyst crops heavily on predominantly spineless plants. Purple flowers and silvery-grey foliage make this an attractive plant even at an early stage—an excellent choice for home gardens and market growers.
Begin seeds indoors 8 to 10 weeks before planning to set out in early Spring. Eggplant loves heat, so the seeds germinate best at about 24 degrees C - use a heat mat if possible, beneath or seed flat, or find another source of bottom heat if your house is cooler than this. Cover the seeds lightly if sowing in a seed flat; They will germinate in about 1 to 2 weeks.
The seedlings crave heat and light; give them all you can (grow lights are wonderful, but kitchen fluorescents work well too if the seedlings are placed directly beneath them) and feed them weekly. They are ready to transplant whenever they have at least 2 sets of true leaves but wait until the outside weather is thoroughly warm before transplanting into a garden or patio container.
