How to Grow Organic Egg Plant In Containers - Flower to fruits
This year we got almost everything right and
The Result was healthy Egg Plants which bloomed
Year long and we could harvest more than a
Dozen every 3rd or 4th day.
In the First stage, the small flower bud enlarges and purple petals are formed.
In 2 days time, its petal open and you are able to
See the Green toped Stigma in the centre and the dark Yellow filaments surrounding it
Which are responsible for its pollination
After the successful pollination of the flower, it starts it journey towards becoming a fruit.
The Green Sepals at the base of the flower close and the petals become dry in 1 to 2 days and fall off
The Flower takes the form of small pea sized green ball
In the next 36 hours or so, the baby egg plant fruit pushes out from the front and its light green head can be seen
The drying petals are going to fall off soon.
And the sepals are going to join together and close the mouth of the flower
In the next 36 hours approx. The Baby fruit is formed and it breaks out from front of the flower
We noticed that even the purple variety of Egg Plant have baby fruits which are green in colour.
We did not exactly note, how much time it takes for a flower to become a fruit
But we can safely say that, it took approx. 2 weeks to become large enough to be harvested for cooking.
We will be posting more informative videos on Egg Plants and various other vegetables that can be grown in containers in future.
