Description
Aubergine 'Patio Baby' is a dwarf variety producing 25 – 50 fruits per plant! Compact, bushy plants produce bumper crops of mini Aubergines that are perfect for baking or roasting whole. Each purple skinned fruit measures 5-7cm with a sweet and gentle flavour. The plants are thornless for easy picking, and make a good choice for the UK’s short growing season. Perfect for growing in patio pots, or in greenhouses where space is limited. Height and spread: 50cm (20").

How to Grow
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 in a sheltered position in full sun. Planting through black plastic mulch will help to warm the soil, control weeds and save moisture.
More Info

Aubergines grow best at temperatures of 25-30C (77-86F) with high humidity levels. Water regularly to prevent buds from dropping. Once the first flowers have set, feed aubergines every 2 weeks with a high potash tomato feed. 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.
