Some advices

Light requirements: Full sun.

Planting: Space 24 to 36 inches apart.

Soil requirements: Eggplants need well-drained, nutrient-rich soil. Amend soil with 3 to 5 inches of compost or other organic matter prior to planting.

Water requirements: Keep soil consistently moist throughout the growing season.

Frost-fighting plan: A light frost damages plants (28º F to 32º F). Temperatures below 50º F stop growth and cause fruit not to set. If a surprise late spring frost comes into the forecast, protect newly planted seedlings with a frost blanket.

Common issues: Blossom end rot can develop when soil moisture is erratic. Eggplant needs heat. In cold regions, planting in black pots can help warm soil and provide necessary heat to jump-start growth. Plants drop flowers when daytime temps soar above 90º F, nights are below 50º F, or drought stresses plants.

Harvesting: Pick when skin is glossy; dull fruit indicates over-ripeness. Both under-and over-ripe fruit tastes bitter.
