love the detailed articles on growing eggplants in containers. since they are related to tomatos, do you have to pinch the "crotch" or new growth off?

Trim off any suckers that originate in the joint between the main stem and lateral branches of the eggplant. Cut or pull them off as they occur at the point of origin on the main stem.

Happy Gardening!
