Picking eggplants

Zone Scottsdale, AZ | Tcecil added on July 25, 2017 | Answered

I have a Iciban eggplant in a container on my patio that is doing well. After a while, the fruit turns yellow and does not stay purple. I assume that I have left it on the plant too long. Is that right? When is the best time to pick? Thanks, Tom Cecil
