Aubergine ‘Giotto F1’ produces rounded oval fruits of a glossy dark violet colour. It is an excellent variety for indoor or outdoor cultivation. This disease resistant variety also has good resistance to handling marks and oxidation when cut. The plants are also resistant to Verticiluim albo-atrum (Va) and Verticilium dahliae (Vd).
The plants grow to a height of 55cm (22in) and a spread of 45cm (18in). They are well suited to growing in containers or in open ground in a warm sunny location and will grow easily in a greenhouse or tunnel. The upright foliage aids ventilation, which is especially useful when grown under plastic. The purple-black, smooth shiny fruits mature in just 60 to 65 days from transplant.
