Eggplant Problem

Anonymous added on July 1, 2011 | Answered

My eggplants are breaking at the main stem because of the weight. They are not yet ripe enough to harvest but are too heavy for the branch. There are too many branches to put in a post. Should I use cages to support the branches next year? Is that unheard of or just not good?

Anytime you are growing eggplant, you want to stake the plants up to support the heavy vegetables. The use of tomato cages are preferred. However, you can use metal or wooden stakes as well.
