Aubergines

Paul C. added on September 9, 2012 | Answered

In my greenhouse I have 6 plants and they get fed tomato rite every week. I also keep peppers there too. These are fine. The problem is that the fruit seems too loose it's shiny blackness and is almost bleached to a pale white colour. Any ideas?

Thanks
Paul

It sounds like sunscald. Are they getting direct light? The direct light may be too strong and essentially sunburns the fruit. If this is the case, try filtering the light some with an opaque shade or by moving the plants to a less direct light situation.
