For zones 3-12 Purple eggplant are a staple in your Organic garden and prefer full sun. It's best to start these in starter pots 8-10 weeks before your last frost in the spring. Use deeply watered soil and place seeds 1/4 inch deep in the soil. Lightly cover the surface with vermiculite or sand as they need light to germinate. Keep warm (use a germination mat if necessary) as they need at least 80 degrees at all times and water from below as they don't like to be disturbed. Transplant the seedlings to the garden when they are 3 inches tall and the temperature at night is at least 70 degrees. Space the seedlings 36 inches all the way around. Direct sowing is not recommended. Eggplant grows well in a container, keep in mind containers dry out quickly.
