Likewise, how do you take care of eggplant plants?
Because eggplant really needs warm soil togrow well, gardeners in cool climates often do best growingthe plants in large, dark-colored containers. On a sunnyday, soil temperatures inside black pots may be 10 degrees or morehigher than in-ground soil temperatures.
Likewise, how many eggplants do you get per plant? My experience has been that 2-4 eggplants perplant is more common with the classic varieties such as BlackBeauty than 6-12 fruit.
Also asked, how long does it take to grow an eggplant?
100 to 120 days
Why is my eggplant not growing?
Soil Condition Eggplants need well-drained soil, rich innitrogen and phosphorous for optimal growth. If your soil lacks anyof these conditions, your eggplants will growfoliage, but not bear any fruit.
