Should I thin the smaller eggplant fruit? I have quite large number of small ones (much like tomatoes.)

There are many different varieties of Eggplants, some small types and larger.
Verify the type you are growing.
Most gardeners will not want to thin the fruit.

Eggplants are prone to falling over when loaded with fruit, so you may want to tie plants to stakes to keep them upright. If you drive a stake into the ground just an inch or two from the plant at the time of planting, you won’t disturb the plant by trying to do it later. You can also use small tomato cages to support the plants.
