Description: eggplant Purple, aubergine, melongene or brinjal (Solanum melongena) is a plant of the family Solanaceae (also known as the nightshades) and genus Solanum.

The eggplant is high in fiber content and helps digestive function, and lowers risk of coronary heart disease. In addition, eggplant is a great source of potassium, Vitamin C, and protein.

How to Grow?

Start indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost. Surface-sow and keep moist until the sprouts appear, which can take up to three weeks or so. 

Transplant into the garden when weather has settled and soil is warm. 

Provide rich soil and ample moisture.

Give eggplants about an inch of water a week.

Pinch back new blossoms about three weeks before the first expected frost. 

This will channel the plants' energy into maturing existing fruits rather than producing new ones that won't survive the frost.
