Using Aubergine Seeds in Your Garden
Aubergine seeds are one of the easiest and most rewarding vegetable seeds to grow. A yellowish purple flower that is about 2 inches across, with a fuchsia undersides, this beautiful vegetable thrives in tropical climates, being an easy variety to grow in pots. When it is still in the budding stage, it will flower profusely, taking over your garden before you know it! If this sounds like your ideal garden, then here are some tips for growing aubergine in containers.
Aubergine seeds, sometimes called'Tomato A' or 'Spotted Aubergine', come from the same group of tomatoes as tomatoes; hence they all have the same general growing requirements. They require warmth when sown, but with just a little care and attention you can have excellent home grown aubergines even when do not have the most welcoming of temperatures. Being a perennial, you should be able to get your aubergines about half way through to flowering if you plant them at the right temperature.
The most important thing to remember when you are trying to grow aubergines in containers is that they like a warm climate. This does not mean that you should plant them in a greenhouse! While this is true, the climate they prefer is one that is slightly cooler, and certainly one where your plants receive about six hours of sunlight. They will not flower during the winter months. Aubergine grapes are very hardy plants, which is why they can survive even in the most inhospitable conditions. It is very tempting to plant them in a shaded corner of a patio or greenhouse, but be warned that unless you pay careful attention to the temperature of the soil and water supply in the area where you want to grow them, you may end up with dried, overripe, or mis-hapen fruits.
There are many varieties of aubergine available on the market today, but the easiest to grow are the'red' aubergines. These grow on the ends of the bulb, and are the type which usually look like small, dark eggplants. When you buy these aubergine seeds from a specialist retailer you should be able to find information about the plant and the growing conditions it requires. 'Pink' aubergines are similar to the'red' varieties, but come in shades of pink or yellow. If you are looking for edible seeds inside the'red eggplants' you should be aware that some recipes, such as those made with eggplant puree, may require you to substitute the aubergine seed used with another variety of vegetable.
Fruits and vegetables do best when they are kept at a specific humidity level and temperature, which is something that you should learn more about if you grow them yourself. While most aubergines do well in areas where the temperature of the soil is around 60 degrees Fahrenheit, some varieties can tolerate temperatures of up to one hundred and forty degrees Fahrenheit. Keep in mind that your plants will also benefit from being fertilized and watered on a regular basis, especially if they are growing in an area that experiences high levels of humidity.
While it is usually easier to grow tomatoes from seeds than from cuttings, there are some advantages to planting both types of plants together. All varieties of this garden plant are full of the vitamins, minerals, and fiber needed to keep the body healthy. Because of this reason, many people choose to use them in the production of their own recipes. Tomato paste, juice, and powder can be created from the seeds inside your eggplants. If you are going to try this, you should be sure to pick a variety that is known for its good taste, as some varieties of eggplants can have a bitter taste when they are harvested.
If you are looking for a good way to get more greens in your diet, consider an Aubergine. These plants are commonly used in suttons, sauces, soups, and even stews. They can easily take over a large area of your garden bed if you do not control their growth. Keep in mind that you should always plant these suttons next to other plants, such as squash, cucumbers, or tomatoes, in order to ensure that they get the proper amount of sunlight. While Aubergine seeds will grow well alone, they will do better with other plants of the same type.
If you are interested in making use of your Aubergine planting to produce larger sausages, then you should consider using them in seed compost. It is not necessary to purchase fresh seeds if you do not want to. You can simply buy them and put them in a compost bin, mixing them up with the other organic matter. The best compost to use for this purpose is a slow-release worm castings blend. Make sure you purchase a good brand to ensure a healthy crop.
Other than being great for growing your own vegetables and herbs, Aubergine is also excellent to use in making delicious and easy to make eggplants. They will yield very small, round, soft eggplants that are rich in Vitamin A, potassium, and iron. To make this dish taste its best, you may boil the aubergine in water and simmer it until its solids have dissolved completely. Then drain off the water and let the aubergine drain on paper towels. All you have to do after that is to garnish with salt, pepper, and a little sugar to give your delicious eggplants a delightful, sweet taste.
