How long to eggplants take to ripen?
Fruit on my eggplants began growing back in early May shortly after transplanting them into the garden.
Some of the fruit have just stopped growing. They got to about the size of a small paste tomato then just quit. They remain hard to this day. The few plants that have this seem to put their energy towards other fruit... very odd?
Other fruit has grown into pretty harvestable sizes, a little bigger than a Mango, but it's still too firm. I cut one anyway and cut it up and saw it was not ready inside either.
So how long does this take? I am very inexperienced in eggplant growing. And it wasn't easy growing eggplants here, this is my third year the first two were total failures.
