AUBERGINE Gretel F1 Hybrid


15 in stock


PLEASE NOTE: This is a seed packet

These glossy ivory fruits are ready for picking when just 7-10cm (3-4in) long, and they won’t become bitter as they mature. Grown in a patio pot restricts height to 90cm (3ft) and width to 60cm (2ft). As Gretel is virtually seedless, it’s perfect for baking and frying too.

Place seed on the surface of a free-draining compost and cover with about 6mm (¼in) of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at 18-21°C (65-70°F) until after germination, which takes 10-14 days.

Maintain temperature about 15°C (60°F). Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Plant in final position 60cm (24in) apart when plants are 10cm (4in) high.

Position: Full Sun
Plant Height: 90-130cm
