Aubergine ‘Purple Knight’ is an unusual-looking variety producing an early harvest of long, banana-shaped deep purple fruits, delicious roasted, sautéed or baked. The compact, disease-resistant plants are ideal for pots on a sunny patio or in a greenhouse.

Sow indoors

February-May: Sow individually, in clean 9cm (3 1/2in) pots or module trays of firm, pre-watered compost and cover with 1cm (1/2in) of vermiculite or sieved compost. Place in warmth, 21-24°C (70-75°F) and keep moist at all times.

Plant out

May-June: Grow on at 16-18°C (60-65°) until late May-June. When established, plant into a patio pot 45cm (18in) in diameter, or a grow bag, and leave in a cold greenhouse or place in a sunny, sheltered position when the risk of frost has passed.

Tips

Feed regularly and water more frequently as a crop forms. Tie stems to a support if necessary.
