Aubergine Moneymaker x 2 (9cm)
This is a No 2 F1 Hybrid. We try our best NOT to buy or sow F1 hybrids, but sometimes we have no alternatives and we do not want to throw away seed either. (We do have an organic Aubergine alternative on here).
This is a reliable cropper yielding semi-long black fruits.
Can be grown outside in a sunny sheltered area with protection.
Water well when fruits are forming, adding a liquid fertiliser (we like seaweed feed) every 10-14 days.
Harvest July onwards.
Sow indoors Jan-March at 20-25 centigrade, reduce to 15 once seedlings out.
Transplant to pots at 2-4 leaf stage.
Harden off in greenhouse or cold frame before planting out.
