Eggplant Problems

Anonymous added on January 18, 2014 | Answered

I live in coastal sub tropical Queensland in Australia and have planted three types of eggplant - Calliope, Ivory and Nancy. All have yielded fruit but the fruit from all three varieties always contain more seeds than flesh. Any ideas to stop this from happening?
