Growing Eggplant Seeds in Your Vegetable Garden

  • Flavorful vegetable with versatile uses
  • Enjoys warmth and sun
  • Non-GMO, heirloom seeds
  • Healthy and nutritious, ideal for any diet


Spreading from Asia to all over the world, eggplant is beloved for its versatile use and nutritional profile. Its meat-like consistency paired with fiber, vitamins, and minerals make this vegetable a star in many diets and cuisines.
Eggplants grow well in USDA hardiness zones 5 to 13. They require a warm growing season to develop their fruits fully.


For an early start on the growing season, sow eggplant seeds 1/4 inch deep in trays indoors, 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost date. For those growing in warm climates, eggplant seeds can be sown directly into the ground or container. When the weather is consistently warm, transplant seedlings to their permanent spot in the garden. Eggplants require warm soil and air for optimal thriving. Mulch around the base of the plants can help warm the soil and retain its moisture.


Water is crucial for eggplant’s fruit development. Keeping the soil moist will ensure their growth and quality, but do not water the leaves. Support can be useful, like stakes or cages. Eggplants are known to be heavy feeders. Incorporating matured manure or compost into the soil will be very useful to help fruit production. By planting eggplants with companion plants and doing crop rotation, you can help minimize many potential pests and diseases.

Planting eggplant seeds is rewarding for your whole family and provides a healthy, nutritious vegetable with many uses.
