Aubergine Faselis provides an excellent yield throughout the summer season which can be used in all kinds of delicious Mediterranean recipes. Fruits boast shiny, near-black skins with tasty, creamy-coloured flesh on the inside. These delicious Aubergines can be picked small and barbecued, or allowed to fully form into larger fruits which can be sliced, stuffed or baked. Aubergine Faselis is best grown in the greenhouse for a long lasting crop, which starts early in the season and continues through to autumn. Also suitable for growing on sunny, sheltered patios during the summer months. Height: 75cm (30”). Spread: 60cm (24”).

T&M's easy starter plants are delivered ready for planting at the correct time so that you can enjoy bigger, earlier and tastier vegetables. Pot up young plants and grow them on until they are large enough to be transplanted.
When all risk of frost is passed and the soil is warm, harden off and plant aubergines in their final positions. For indoor cultivation, pot on into larger containers or plant 2 aubergines per growbag. Outdoors, plant aubergines in rich fertile soil at a distance of 90cm (3’) apart, in rows spaced 90-120cm (3-4’) apart. Grow aubergines in a sheltered position in full sun. Planting through black plastic mulch will help to warm the soil, control weeds and save moisture.
Aubergines grow best at temperatures of 25-30C (77-86F) with high humidity levels. Stake aubergine plants as they increase in size and pinch out the main growing tip to encourage a bushy habit. Water regularly to prevent buds from dropping. Once the first flowers have set, feed aubergines every 2 weeks with a high potash tomato feed. Restricting the crop to 5 or 6 per plant will produce the largest fruits. Harvest aubergines by cutting them close to the stem from August onwards, when the fruit appears fully coloured and shiny. Harvest regularly to promote further flowers and to extend the picking season.
