Your own garden is a rich source of nutrients for the body. In addition, vegetables grow without the use of harmful impurities. Among all the representatives of cultures, it is worth highlighting eggplant, which has an excellent taste, although some prefer to use other vegetables. But amateurs won't trade eggplants for anything else. This representative has many varieties, one of which is a species with an interesting female name - Galina F1.
Galina F1 eggplants belong to the fruits of an early maturing variety. They have a cylindrical shape, painted in a dark purple color. The flesh inside the Galina fruit is tender, loose, white in color, there is no bitterness, which is very good for cooking many dishes. In terms of taste, Galina F1 eggplants are distinguished by their sophistication and piquancy. Thanks to this, the fruits are used to create various culinary recipes. The mass of ripe fruits in Galina plants can reach from 200 to 220 grams. Sometimes specimens weighing 250 or 300 grams can be found. This can be clearly seen in the photo below.
Eggplant bushes Galina F1 look quite powerful, grow to a height of 60 to 80 centimeters. Moreover, if the fruits grow, covered with a film, then the bushes can stretch up to 80-90 centimeters.
The plant has a semi-spreading crown structure. As for the eggplant leaves, they are rather large and have a pleasant green color, the edges are even. There are practically no thorns on the bushes, or they are very rarely located. This fact contributes to the convenient collection of ripe Galina fruits from plants.
Perhaps the main feature of eggplant is to create a rich harvest, as evidenced by numerous reviews of summer residents.

Good tasty, but most importantly, not bitter fruits - what else can you say about Galina's eggplants? The plant itself is unpretentious to growing conditions. In addition, this is a great option when you do not want to wait long for the harvest. The bushes brought a lot of eggplants, and since we all just adore this healthy vegetable, there was no limit to joy! Of course, I had to work a little: watering, feeding and other necessary procedures. However, this applies to any vegetable crop and the result is almost always positive.

For a long time, my wife and I have been growing eggplants of this particular variety. After planting, the plants were looked after as if they were small children: they made top dressing, sometimes sprayed them as a precaution. As a result, a fruitful harvest and no disease even came close. " The fruits ripen 105-110 days after the start of germination. From one square meter of the garden plot, you can pick up about 6 or 6.5 kg of ripe eggplants. At the same time, the F1 variety is resistant to many diseases.

Fruits can form even under adverse weather conditions. This means that the eggplant variety is suitable for growing in almost any region of Russia. In addition, the plant takes root well in greenhouse conditions without heating in spring. Winter greenhouses are best equipped with a heating system.
It is allowed to plant eggplant seedlings Galina F1 in different ways. As a rule, this is sowing on open ground or in a greenhouse. Seedlings are pre-planted in mid-March. At the same time, they are placed in the ground to a depth of no more than 1.5-2 cm. The final planting of seedlings is carried out from the end of May to the beginning of June.
It is recommended to adhere to the following seedling placement scheme. The optimal distance between the rows should be at least 60 cm. The distance between the bushes should be 40 cm. With this ideal position, each plant will receive all the necessary nutrients, watering and microelements for the successful ripening of Galina fruits.

It is also worth planting taking into account the optimal density. No more than 4-6 plants should be concentrated on each square meter. Only in this case the high yield of Galina fruits is ensured. Too high density of bushes adversely affects the ripening of fruits, which become much less.
To provide yourself and your family with a rich harvest of ripe and tasty Galina F1 eggplants, you need to make sure that each plant receives the maximum nutrients. And it doesn't matter where exactly the Galina F1 variety is grown: in the open air or in greenhouse conditions.
It is important to monitor the amount of fertilizer applied. In the case of an excess of additional nutrition, the plants practically cease to produce inflorescences, and, consequently, fruits. An excessive amount of fertilizer not only negatively affects the condition of the plants, but also contributes to a change in the taste of Galina fruits - their pulp acquires bitterness.
When introducing additional nutrition, it is important to understand what is being introduced into the soil and for what purpose. If the fertilizer was applied to the ground, before planting eggplants of the Galina F1 variety, then it is worth abandoning humus, compost, mullein. This will bring nothing but harm and great trouble. During the procedure, it is necessary to carefully monitor that substances do not get on the leaves or fruits. Otherwise, wash them off immediately.
As for the composition of fertilizers, you should abundantly give plants such elements as:
Timely feeding every week will provide Galina F1 eggplants with the necessary nutrients. This will reflect in the best way on the taste of Galina fruits, giving them uniqueness and sophistication.
