In tropical or subtropical climates, like India, the seeds can directly be sown into the ground. However, make sure that there is no more risk of frost, and that the cold season has truly made way for warmer climes.
The brinjal plant requires lots of sun to thrive. The seeds need to be planted 1cm deep and spaced about 15 cm from each other. Water regularly and the seeds generally germinate within 2-3 weeks.
Other than the basics of sun and water, the eggplant is generally quite a hardy plant, and does not need much external nutrients or feeding. A layer of mulch, though not required, will help the growth of the plant. Usually the first blossoms are not very attractive and do not yield fruit due to lack of pollination. However, this can be altered by hand pollinating your plants.
The crop should be harvested around 2-3 months after germination, where the fruit is picked from the flower. Generally they are harvested over a month, with weekly pickings.
