Patio Baby Eggplant Seeds

Patio Baby Eggplant Seeds

Pocket-Sized Flavor Treasure

Patio Baby Eggplant, a compact cultivar originating from Asia, has garnered attention for its petite size and abundant production, making it an ideal choice for container gardens and small spaces.

The plant typically reaches a height of 12 to 18 inches, boasting a bushy, compact form adorned with small, dark green leaves that beautifully complement its diminutive size. The fruits are small, oval-shaped, and glossy purple, resembling miniature eggplants, adding an adorable charm to any garden setting.

Taste-wise, Patio Baby Eggplant offers a mild, delicate flavor and a tender texture when cooked. Despite its small size, the fruit retains a creamy consistency and is ideal for various culinary applications, especially in dishes like stir-fries, grilling, or as a colorful addition to salads.

When planting from seed, Patio Baby Eggplant thrives in well-draining, nutrient-rich soil with full sun exposure. Begin by starting seeds indoors in a warm environment, around 70-85°F (21-29°C), for successful germination. Once seedlings have developed several true leaves, they can be transplanted into containers or garden beds with a spacing of 12 inches between plants to allow for optimal growth.

Regular watering, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged, supports healthy plant development and encourages continuous fruiting throughout the growing season. Patio Baby Eggplant's compact size, prolific fruiting, and versatile culinary uses make it a popular choice for gardeners looking to cultivate eggplants in limited spaces or in container gardens.

Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Eggplants prefer moderately fertile, well-drained loamy soil supplemented with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Eggplants require heavy water and warm soil.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost. Sow seeds directly in warm climates only. Because eggplants need plenty of water and warm conditions to grow, production accessories such as drip irrigation, plastic mulch, and row covers are a good idea. All eggplants are chill sensitive.

Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting early when fruits are half their mature size; young fruits are more tender and early picking will increase yields. Cut the fruit from the plant with shears leaving some stem attached.
