Harvesting White Brinjals Or White Eggplants From My Garden

I have been wanting to publish this post but somehow it got shelved again and again. Today, finally I am able to publish this post about my white brinjals! I can't remember exactly when I bought a packet of white brinjal seeds from the plant nursery.

Brinjals harvested from my garden.

The misplaced packet of seeds was found and I sowed the seeds. I also sowed other seeds including the purple brinjals in different containers. Some sprouted and none from the brinjal seeds. Days passed and I thought that both the white and purple brinjal seeds have expired and couldn't sprout.

Much later, 2 seedlings sprouted but I wasn't sure from which. The seedlings have matured and started to fruit. I was very excited over the first sight of the brinjal fruit.

I didn't keep track of the days but these 2 brinjals look good for harvest.

More brinjals appeared on the plants.

Both the plants are very fruitful.

At one time, I get to harvest about 2 to 3 brinjals, just enough for 1 meal.

Sometimes I get to harvest one 1 brinjal and some malabar spinach leaves.

Looking forward to grow more white brinjals in my garden.

How can men be wise?

The only way to begin is by reverence for God.

For growth in wisdom comes from obeying his laws.

Praise his name forever.

(Psalm 111:10, The Living Bible-TLB)

  3. Brinjals are new to me. Amazing how nature works, where you can grow and harvest your own food.

  8. How do we know when to harvest??

    White eggplants. I never bought or tasted one as hardly could find it in the market. But my boy's tuition teacher did planted some. Small white eggplants. Now she chopped off the plants, maybe plant to plant new plants.
