Planting and care for thorny brinjal

Sowing thorny brinjal seeds

Sowing should be performed in thin lines with a spacing of 5-7 cm between them. The seeds are usually planted in grow bags at a depth of 2-3 cm, covered with a fine layer of soil. During the first week, water the seed cells using a spoon. Daily, provide two tablespoons of water. Avoid overwatering by watering at the soil level near the plant. 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 thorny brinjal

When the seedlings reach a height of 12-15 cm and have 3-to-4 leaves, they are ready for transplanting in larger grow bags at 30 days. The minimum spacing requirement is 55 x 22 inches. 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 in large grow bags firmly around the seedlings. The spacing is determined by the soil fertility, varieties, and the season's suitability. It requires well-drained, light, and nutrient-rich soil. It's time to start fertilizing after they develop their first set of genuine leaves. Begin fertilizing with a very dilute solution of Organic Humic Acid or Fish Amino Acid 100 percent Organic Concentrated - Growth Promoter. You can also use organic vermicompost to fertilize your seedlings. Fertilize your seedlings once a week or so with this dilute solution.

Harvesting thorny brinjal

Three months after seeding, the brinjal plant will begin to flower, and you will be able to harvest in 70-80 days. The ripe fruits should be harvested as soon as they reach a suitable size and colour. 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. Generally, the plant matures at 40-52 days. 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. Since the plant has thorns, it is advised to be careful while harvesting the vegetable. Prune it with a sharp knife and wear gloves.

Precautions while growing thorny 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.
  • Be careful with the thorns. Wear appropriate gloves for protection.

Common Problems affecting thorny brinjal plants and solutions

Whitefly, Aphids, Jassids Use bio pest control for sucking pests measures like. You can spray Neem oil also to control these pests.

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 thorny brinjal, 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.


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.
