Eggplant— a member of the Solanaceae (tomato) family and related to tomato, pepper, and Irish potato—is becoming an important part of increasingly diverse commercial vegetable operations in Alabama. This eight-page publication offers guidelines for planting (including soil type, planting dates, and seedling spacing), irrigation, harvesting, cooling, and storage—as well as recommended eggplant cultivars for Alabama. Includes color photos for identification of eggplant diseases and pests.
