Perennial Eggplants

Anonymous added on July 5, 2011 | Answered

I read that eggplants are perennials. What do I need to do to make sure mine comes back next year? Do I just cut it back as with other perennials?

They can be pruned back in fall but it's probably more efficient to just get new plants. Here is an article that you may find helpful:
