BOTANICAL NAME: Solanum melongena
Likes hot weather. Start in flats or pot (indoors or in a greenhouse) 8 weeks before night temps will be above 50F. Prefers light, rich, well-drained soil but needs to be kept moist. May need night cover in cool areas (try a row cover open at the sides, jugs of water around the plants, or reemay, so there is ventiliation). Prefers 80-90F days with nights above 70F. Don't plant where other nightshades such as tomatoes and potatoes have been the year before, to avoid wilt.
