Product Description - Organic White Brinjal Seeds - Open Pollinated
Brinjal is a nutrient-dense vegetable with many health benefits. It's low in calories and fats, and it's mainly made up of water, with some calcium, fibre, and carbohydrates added to the mix. It is high in total water-soluble sugars, free reducing sugars, and amide proteins, among other nutrients, and is a good source of minerals and vitamins. Brinjal is well-known for its ayurvedic medicinal properties and is beneficial to people with diabetes. It's also been suggested as a promising treatment for people who have liver problems. Brinjal seeds take one to two weeks to germinate after sowing. Container-grown seedlings are suitable for field planting because they don't disrupt the root system. Flowers typically bloom 40-45 days after being transplanted. The production of high-yielding, early, better-quality, and disease-resistant brinjal varieties has focused on breeding efforts. The fruit is a fleshy berry that grows singly or in clusters.

Planting and care for brinjal
Sowing white brinjal seeds
- Choose a seedling tray with medium-sized cells and bottom drainage holes.
- Pour the coco-peat medium into the cells after moistening it.
- In each cell, sow two to three brinjal seeds. Brinjal seeds are small and should not be planted too deeply.
- Place the seeds on the medium's surface and push them inside with a pencil tip, ensuring that they are submerged deep enough to be covered in the organic coco - peat medium.
- Hold the seedling tray indoors before the seeds sprout.
- For the first week, water the seeds with a spoon. Two tablespoons of water a day are appropriate. Submerge the seedling tray in another tray of water for 30 minutes to allow the seed cells to absorb water through drainage holes from the bottom.
- After transplanting the seeds into grow bags, protect them from rain and direct sunlight. To cover the bed, make a temporary roof out of the plastic sheet. It should be watered with a watering with a light shower.
Growing white brinjal seeds
This vegetable crop is a warm-season crop, making it vulnerable to extreme cold, leading to yield deformation. In terms of soil requirements, the brinjal plant can grow in almost any form of soil, but it thrives in fertile, well-drained, slightly acidic, organically rich soil. Light soils are best for early yields, while silt-loam or clay-loam are better if you need a higher yield. The pH level should range between 6.5 and 7.5. Brinjal seeds germinate in well-drained, organic-rich soil and should be grown in direct sunlight. Until planting, apply mature compost like A2 Desi Cow Panchagavya Organic Growth Promoter or organic planting mix to the soil and turn it into a depth of 12" (30 cm). Drape black plastic over the planting beds for 14 days to warm the soil before planting.
Harvesting young brinjal plants before they become pithy takes 100 to 150 days, and transplanting them takes 70 to 85 days. When brinjal vegetables reach the proper marketable size and attractive colour, they should be harvested. However, it should be done before they begin to ripen. When they reach maturity, they take on a bright colour and a shiny look. Harvesting should be undertaken at an immature stage to supply fresh vegetables to the market for cooking. Harvest the fruit manually by twisting it or cutting it with sharp knives. Allow vegetables to reach marketable shape and size if you want to increase vegetable production. However, when the vegetables begin to look dull, avoid harvesting them. It's a sign of over-advanced maturity. It may result in a decrease in the quality and, as a result, the quantity of brinjal farming.
Precautions while growing brinjal
- Avoid a late freeze on your brinjal plants.
- Plants are covered by row covers made of spun poly.
- Cold weather and a lack of moisture can make pollination difficult.
- When summer temperatures exceed 100°F (37°C) or higher, cover brinjal plants with a shade cloth.
- Stakes or cages can be used for tall and heavy-fruited varieties.
Common Problems affecting brinjal plants and solutions
Bacterial and fungal infections are common in brinjal plants.Bacterial and fungal diseases can also affect brinjals. A soil fungus causes Verticillium wilt, which causes small, wilted plants to die. Another fungus that causes ripening fruits to fall off is blossom end rot. Bacterial wilt, which kills most infected plants, is also a problem with eggplants. Several types of blight attack developing fruits or the entire plant, resulting in fruit loss or plant death.
Using collars and row covers to protect this warm-weather crop may help avoid early infestations. Insecticide soaps and frequent inspections will help to reduce the effect of pests on mature plants. Brinjal plant pests and diseases can be reduced by rotating where they are planted in the garden from year to year. To ensure a healthy eggplant crop, effective pest control is essential.
Little leaf of brinjal is a viral disease of brinjal. It is a disease spread by leafhoppers. The leaves turn to light yellow colour when the plant is infected. To prevent this disease, good sanitation is necessary. Destroy the infected plants and use organic biopesticides like neem cakes.
