Default May have to rename my container garden to Eggplant Ridge

The eggplants have been the rock stars of my container garden this year - check out the bounty

That's great! I have the same issue. One plant - Japanese White -- has 17 fruit hanging from it.

Looking great, WilburMartin!

I'm super happy with my eggplants as well, though they are in the ground. I keep hearing that they do really great in containers, though, so I might move them to my large containers and plant my dwarf tomatoes in the ground next year.

My Mitoyo eggplant could really be an ornamental plant if not for the flea beetle damage. It's a really gorgeous plant, with dark purple shading on the foliage and the usual beautiful lavender eggplant flowers. Even the satiny black fruit with black calyxes are pretty!

I like eggplant almost as much as tomatoes - may have to adjust my selection and just grow eggplant and tomatoes next year
