This is likely caused by a pollination issue. The high heat and humidity in a large part of the country has been causing issues with proper pollination. You may need to hand pollinate. Eggplants pollinate in exactly the same way as tomatoes, so you can follow the directions in this article to help the plant properly pollinate: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/pollinate-tomatoes.htm
