How to Grow Eggplants in Chandler, Arizona, United States of America

Eggplant is a nightshade species that is grown as an edible fruit, a member of the Solanaceae family which also includes tomatoes, peppers and potatoes. Eggplant, also known as Aubergine, is indigenous to a vast area in the southern and eastern parts of Asia, and its cultivation is estimated to have started around 600 BC in the Indo-Burma region, where it was used for both food consumption and medicinal uses. Today eggplants are mostly used in cooking. While raw it has a bitter taste, but develops complex and rich flavor when cooked - I personally like it charred over the direct flame on a gas stove. Asian countries were the first to really make use of the eggplant in the kitchen around 3 AD. In India the eggplant is considered the King of Vegetables. There are around 770 varieties of eggplant that can be found in tropical and sub-tropical areas around the world. However, roughly 15-20 varieties are grown for commercial uses, with China the leader in eggplant production producing 17 million tons per year, and India a distant second with 8 million tons per year. Eggplants are not really vegetables, they’re actually berries. We consider the eggplant a vegetable but it is botanically a fruit. One interesting fact about eggplants is that it contains nicotine, the harmful material present in cigarettes. A study published in 1993 in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that eggplants have the highest levels of nicotine of any vegetable. However, you would need to consume roughly 30-40 pounds of eggplants (which is about 15-18 eggplants) to consume the same level of nicotine as one cigarette. For an elaborate and detailed history of eggplants I recommend the article below. https://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/chronicaeggplant.pdf written by Purdue University Horticulture Department. The first eggplants were small and egg-shaped, used mostly for ornamental purposes - which is where it got its name. It is a favorite among many vegetarians, serving as a good substitute for meat because it is rich in fiber and Vitamin B6.

Eggplant Germination Guide

(Stage 1: Germination)

Germination is the process by which a plant grows from a seed. It is the first stage of the plant growing process and it begins when the seed is sown and ends when the radicale emerges out of the seed.

All seeds require proper soil temperature, moisture, air and light conditions to germinate successfully. However, during the germination stage the seeds require more soil warmth and moisture than light exposure.

Seeds respire just like any other living organism, requiring oxygen and producing carbon dioxide (CO2), so it is crucial to use a soil media that is sufficiently aerated so that the seeds do not “suffocate”.

0% of our growing experts recommend to directly sow eggplant seeds into the ground. What is direct sowing and why do I care about it?

Eggplant Growing Guide

(Stages 2-5: Growth)

Once seed has germinated and radicale has emerged the second stage of the plant growing process begins, developing from radicale to cotyledon -the embryonic first leaves of the seed forming a young seedling.

During the third stage of plant development cotyledon develops to 3-4 true leaves, stem begins to grow, becoming a mature seedling.

In the fourth stage the mature seedling develops to a young plant, ready for transplanting.

The fifth stage of plant development the plant is fully mature bearing fruit and/or flower.

The following guidelines apply to all of the eggplant plants’ needs during stages 2-5 from radicale emergence to full maturity. During these stages sunlight becomes a more active participant in plant growth and development than in the germination phase.

Soil pH is an important factor during these stages as well. What is pH and why is it important?

How difficult is it to grow eggplants?

Growing eggplants, or any other vegetable for that matter, is not hard, however some plants require more attention and care than others depending on the following factors:

 

Are you starting to grow your plant from seed? seedling? young plant? Depending on what stage plant you choose to plant will impact growing difficulty and patience.

The length of the growing season for your exact garden location.

If you have a short growing season and you want to start growing from seed then you may need to start the growing process in a sheltered environment (greenhouse or inside your home) which will require more involvement in the growing process.

Whether you direct sow in the garden or start in trays and then transplant also affects the level of difficulty

Growing difficulty level - 0

Growing patience level - 0
