You should start eggplant seeds indoors about 8 weeks before your last frost. Sow your seeds about 1/4 inch deep in soil trays or pots. They should germinate after about 14 days. When you plant them outdoors space them 18-24 inches apart. Covering the soil with landscape fabric or black plastic can warm it faster and accelerate the growth of the your eggplants. They will mature about 70-85 days after they are transplanted.
There are about 11k seeds in an ounce of Striped Togo eggplant.
