Harvesting And Yield

Harvesting and yield

  • Brinjal fruits are harvested when they have developed a good colour and marketable size, are still immature, tender and have not lost culinary qualities. The fruits are harvested with stalk at joint where they are attached to the branch. Normally the plucking can be done at 7 to 10 days depending upon the variety. Yield of brinjal vary according to the region, cultivar and duration of the crop. Early crop normally yields 20-30 t/ha. While long duration crop yields 35-40 t/ha. Many F1 hybrids yield about 40-80t/ha.
