Turkish Orange Eggplant Seeds are a variety of eggplant known for their vibrant orange color and unique shape.
These seeds produce eggplants that are small and oval-shaped, with a smooth skin and a sweet, mild flavor.
They are perfect for grilling, roasting, or using in a variety of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes.
To germinate Turkish Orange Eggplant Seeds, start by filling a seed tray or small pots with seed compost.
Sow the seeds on the surface and press them down gently.
Cover the tray or pots with a layer of vermiculite or compost and place them in a propagator or cover them with a plastic bag.
Keep the tray or pots at a temperature of around 70-75°F (21-24°C) in a bright but shaded spot.
The seeds should germinate within 7-14 days.
When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into 7.5cm pots.
When all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into the greenhouse or outside in a sunny spot.
Space the plants about 90cm apart. Keep the soil consistently moist and fertilize regularly.
- Avoid overcrowding the plants, as this can lead to reduced yields and disease.
- Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid waterlogging.
- Eggplants are heavy feeders, so fertilize regularly with a high-potassium fertilizer.
- They are typically harvested when fruits are full size but still firm to touch.
- They grow best in warm, sunny weather, so be sure to provide them with plenty of sunlight and protection from frost.
