Hello all you wonderful people. Has anyone ever planted egg plant in a square?  What is the best way to have over the plant? Tomato cage or as plant grows up tie it in sections to a stake? Never planted it before, just need alittle advice? Thank you for your time.

happy hi  and glad you\'re here  from Redding, CA. I wish I could help with the eggplant, but I only grew it once and I don't remember much. I think it grew about like a sweet pepper plant, if that helps any. I don't remember staking it. It would definitely fill a square. I'm sure one of the experts will be around soon to help you out.

Eggplants grow really well in Phoenix. I plant 1 eggplant per square foot. For support, I use Pepper & Eggplant cages from Gardener’s Supply Company. They are the perfect size for square foot gardening.

Plant me,  Have you tried out the Search feature?  I just checked and there are 82 threads regarding eggplant. Shocked http://squarefoot.forumotion.com/search?search_keywords=eggplant&typerecherche=interne&show_results=topics

I grow smaller Japanese Millionaire eggplants and use a stake for the main stem, only.  Or, use small, cheap tomato cages.  I plant one per square here in California. Same with the peppers in the same beds. Planting egg plant Garden75

Welcome, Plant me!  I grow Ping Tung, it’s a Japanese skinny, non-bitter and non-fibrous variety.  Easy to grow, mine doesn’t need support but I’m in Ohio with a pretty short growing season.  

I highly recommend it; beautiful plants.  Mine has spikes on the stems, just FYI, I didn’t know that!

Welcome Plant Me. I had good success with White Eggplant - 1 per square. My beds have uprights that I tied them to for support.
