AUBERGINE LISTADA DE GANDIA ~ this Spanish heirloom has stunning white streaked purple fruits that have a sweet & tender flavour to match 10 seeds SOW: Early spring (March) indoors, preferably in a propagator. Pot on when about 5cm high and keep in good light and warm at night. If you can provide winter warmth (15°C) you can start sow in November and overwinter the young plants. GROW: Plant out when all danger of frost has passed – in a greenhouse, porch or conservatory. They like high humidity so if you can place water next to them for constant evaporation. Nip out the main stem when about 25cm high to encourage side shoots. Also remove fruits from the main stem. When the fruits start to develop feed with a tomato fertiliser every 2 weeks, keep the plants well watered although this variety will forgive you forgetting from time to time. Protect from frost in the autumn while the last fruits are finishing. EAT: Bake or roast for minimal oil usage!
