I'm a big fan of aubergines; this year I sowed on January 21st - 

Turkish Orange
Long Purple 
Violette di Firenze
Tsakoniki 
Blanche Ronde a Oeuf
Rotunda Bianca Sfumata di Rosa
Back Beauty 

As with everything sown in the heated props last year, my aubergines suffered with an outbreak of fungus gnats which pretty much wiped out all but a handful of plants. So I'm hoping for better luck this year. I'm planning on 6 plants of each, bar the Turkish - very bitter fruit so one or two plants will be enough. Pity it is so productive!

Is anybody else growing them?

I may try Kermit this year. Never have much success with Aubs but the flowers are pretty.

Probably not, the aphids were a pain in the proverbial and I think I got one fruit per plant. Not worth the trouble.

I've tried a few times and I've never had much from them for the time/effort and space. Shames as I love them cooked with tomato and onion.

I do love aubergines but I can't get mine past the pretty flower stage Sad so after trying again last year I really have given up on them.

The very hot weather seems to have been good for my aubergines, particularly long purple.These have got lots that are about 4" long. Not sure how big they should be before picking, hopefully about 8" I think.
