When is the best harvest time/moment for eggplants, if we are concerned about a low alkaloid concentration?
Very ripe, not so ripe, just ripe, green inside?
thanks for any hint!!!

The best time is while it is still firm, but not after it has gone leathery and wrinkled. This will take a little practice. In the meantime, this article will get you started: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/eggplant/how-to-harvest-eggplants.htm
