Aubergine Moneymaker F1 (Solanum melongena)

Description

Moneymaker F1 seeds produce glossy black, semi-long fruits with deep purple calyx. They are very productive, extra early maturing variety. Moneymakers don't have a bitter taste that other varieties can have. Each plant can grow up to 8 fruit, each around 100g. Aubergines can be easily produced in Britain, either raised in a glasshouse or plastic tunnel, in grow bags, in a sheltered sunny spot in a garden or even on a patio in a tub if sheltered from cool winds.

When to Sow Aubergine Moneymaker F1 Seeds

January to April. Germination usually takes around 10-21 days.

Where to Sow

Space the seeds 2cm (¾") apart in seed trays or two to a cell in modules under glass at 20°C. Cover seeds lightly with vermiculite or finely sieved compost.

What to do next

As soon as two full leaves have developed, prick off seedlings into individual pots. Grow on and plant into grow-bags or large pots. Plants can be grown in containers outside in a sunny sheltered spot. Feed plants as soon as first fruits set , once a week with a high potash tomato food.

Harvest

July to October, around 80 days after sowing.

Handy Tip

Move patio plants into a cool conservatory as autumn approaches so the last fruits of the season have time to mature fully, and so they avoid any frost.
