Product Description - Organic White Long Brinjal Seeds - Open Pollinated

Long white brinjal is a member of the nightshade family. The brinjal is a white-coloured fruit that is edible. The skin of the long white brinjal is tough. Furthermore, because white eggplants have a firm exterior, they are best roasted, steamed, or fried. When it comes to size, the long white brinjal is the bigger of the two. The long white brinjal is less bitter, thicker, and creamier than the violet brinjal. The white brinjal contains more seeds than the violet brinjal. White brinjals, on the other hand, are less acidic.

Planting and care for white long brinjal

Sowing white long 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 white long 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. 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. In well-prepared beds, space 3 to 4-inch tall seedlings 24 to 30 inches apart. 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. Because Eggplant is a heavy feeder, give it a substantial dosage of fertilizer when you initially put it in a plant container, and add lime to the soil because Eggplant requires a lot of calcium. Then, while the plant is actively growing, add fertilizer roughly once a month.

Harvesting white long brinjal

Pinch out the terminal growing points for a bushier plant. Three months after seeding, the brinjal plant will begin to flower, and you will be able to harvest in 10-11 weeks. The ripe fruits should be harvested as soon as they reach a suitable size and colour. When the fruit reaches a 7 to 10 cm diameter, harvest it (about three months after transplanting). Ten to twelve of them can be gathered from each plant with proper irrigation and fertilization. Brinjal plants are sensitive, and harvesting them should be done with care to avoid damaging them (the stems are quite brittle). Pruning scissors are used to cut the fruit. To avoid bruising, handle with caution. Keep in mind that the fruit does not have a long shelf life. The fruit's maturity can be determined by pressing the thumb against the fruit's side. If the pressed portion springs back to its original shape, the fruit is too immature. 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 white long brinjal

  • Take care not to plant the brinjals in a shady area of the garden. The plants require adequate sunlight.
  • Occasionally, any weeds that may grow in the plant bed must be removed.
  • If any disease is detected on the plants, they should be sprayed with pesticides or insecticides.
  • Plants taller than 24 inches should be staked.
  • During the growing season, water thoroughly and apply a balanced fertilizer every two weeks.
  • Maintain a maximum of five or six fruits per plant for larger fruits.

Common Problems affecting white long 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 long white 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.

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.
