Product Description - Organic Purple Round Brinjal Seeds - Open Pollinated

Brinjal is a nutrient-dense vegetable with a long list of health advantages. It's low in calories and fats, and it's all water, with a little calcium, fiber, and carbohydrates thrown in for good measure. It contains many total water-soluble sugars, free reducing sugars, amide proteins, and a lot of minerals and vitamins. Brinjal has ayurvedic therapeutic properties and is helpful to people with diabetes. It's also been recommended as a treatment for people with liver issues. After sowing, brinjal seeds take one to two weeks to germinate. Since bag-grown seedlings do not damage the root system, they are ideal for field planting. After being transplanted, flowers typically bloom 40-45 days later. Breeding has aimed to create high-yielding, early, better-quality, and disease-resistant brinjal varieties. A fleshy berry that grows singly or in clusters, the fruit is juicy.

Benefits/Uses of purple round brinjal

  • The brinjal, also known as eggplant, is high in vitamins and nutrients.
  • Vitamins B1 and B6 are found in them. Potassium, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, niacin, and folic acid are all present in significant amounts.
  • The brinjal's high nutritional value makes it one of the essential vegetables.
  • Eggplants are high in fiber and have a low soluble carbohydrate content. As a result, they are beneficial for controlling blood sugar levels and glucose absorption and advantageous to the heart because it lowers cholesterol levels to a large degree.
  • It also aids in the control of blood pressure.
  • Because of the potassium content in this vegetable, the body is also kept hydrated.
  • Eggplant is beneficial to the brain since it includes phytonutrients, protecting cell membranes from damage and allowing message transmission from one component to another, maintaining memory function.

Planting and care for purple round brinjal

Sowing purple round brinjal seeds

Sowing should be performed in thin lines with a spacing of 5-7 cm between them. The seeds are usually planted at a depth of 2-3 cm, covered with a fine layer of soil, and lightly watered with a watering can. To maintain the necessary temperature and moisture, the beds should be covered with dry straw, grass, or sugarcane leaves. Watering should be done as needed with a watering can before germination is complete. After germination is complete, the cover of dry straw or grass is removed. The seedlings can be hardened by withdrawing water for the last week in the grow bags.

Growing purple round brinjal

When the seedlings reach a height of 12-15 cm and have 3-to-4 leaves, they are ready for transplanting in 4-5 weeks. Withhold irrigation to harden the seedlings. Carefully uproot the seedlings without damaging the roots. Transplanting and irrigation can be performed in the evening hours. Press the soil firmly around the seedlings. The spacing is determined by the soil fertility, varieties, and the season's suitability.

Harvesting purple round brinjal

The fruits are ready to select after 120-130 days of seed sowing, depending on the variety. The ripe fruits should be harvested as soon as they reach a suitable size and color. Fruits are harvested when their flesh becomes dry and tough and turns a purple tint. The maturity of the fruit can be determined by pressing the thumb against the side of the fruit. The fruit is too immature if the pressed part springs back to its original form. During harvesting, a part of the calyx and the stem end is left on the fruit. Since the fruits do not all mature simultaneously, they are harvested at 8-10 day intervals.

Precautions while growing purple round brinjal

  • It is essential not to plant the brinjals in a shady area of the garden.
  • Sunlight should be appropriate for the plants.
  • Any weeds that can grow in the plant bed must be removed from time to time.
  • If any disease is detected, the plants should be sprayed with pesticides or insecticides.
  • Plants taller than 24 inches should be staked.
  • During the growing season, water thoroughly and add a balanced fertilizer every two weeks.
  • Limit the number of larger fruits per plant to five or six.

Common Problems affecting purple round brinjal plants and solutions

Brinjal Fruit and Shoot Borer

This a significant and dangerous insect pest of the brinjal plant. A short pinkish caterpillar consumes internal tissue from the terminal shoot and bores into the young fruit through the calyx. Infestation signs can be seen on the surface. The big holes that are commonly seen on fruits are caterpillar holes. Fruits infested with insects become unfit for consumption.

Control measures:

Any insect-affected portion should be clipped along with the insect and killed, as should any fruit with holes. The use of bio pest control for biting pests is greatly recommended.

Leaf-Eating Beetle:

The beetle and catch feed on the leaves and other tender parts of the eggplant, reducing the yield significantly.

Control Measures:

If the infection is limited to a few plants, handpicking the eggs and larvae is the most effective control method. The use of bio pest control for biting pests is greatly recommended.

Damping-off:

It is a severe disease that primarily affects brinjal seedlings in nursery beds. Seedlings infected with the disease rot at ground level, causing the plants to fall over. Patches of seedlings die.

Control Measures:

Before sowing seeds, the seedbed should be handled with Formalin. Fungicides should be sprayed on seedlings in the nursery at regular intervals. The use of bio pest control is greatly recommended.

Fruit Rot and Phomopsis Blight:

It is a severe brinjal disease. Above land, the fungus destroys all areas of the plants. On the stem, dark brown lesions appear, and round to oval spots appear on the leaves. Disease fruits have short, watery lesions that eventually turn black.

Control measures:

The treatments for this disease are disease-free crops, seed treatment with fungicide, and long crop rotation. Use of Trichoderma Viride or Pseudomonas Fluorescens biofertilizers is greatly recommended.

Little Leaf of Brinjal:

The affected plant develops a large number of tiny Yellow leaves but no fruit. The leafhopper spreads the disease.

Control measures:

The disease-affected plants should be killed, and the insect vector should be managed by spraying the crop with bio pest control is greatly recommended.
