Q.Eggplant Fruit

Zone 33770 | Anonymous added on January 14, 2021 | Answered

I have 2 eggplant plants. One Japanese and one black beauty.

My Japanese plant produce in abundance. But the black beauty gets tons of flowers but the all fall off during the summer season. However, now that it is cooler (I live in the clearwater Florida area) it is starting to fruit up.

Why is this and what can I do to make the fruit come for the summer season?

These early fruits may drop off and the plant should produce again in the spring.
