Awhile ago I was bemoaning no production on my eggplant. Someone suggested that they are big feeders and drinkers. So I babied them a little with extra water and food. A couple days ago I found this:
Eggplant Siting Eggpla10

It is about the size of a gold ball so far. I planted this thing in APRIL! But I am hopeful that I will get an eggplant out of it yet.

My eggplant was slow to produce this year. We got very little until 3 weeks ago and now it s going crazy. I think here in TN it was so much hotter than usual this year.

I'm glad you finally got an eggplant. Mine, too, were slow.
In fact, today as I was pulling out spent plants to prepare the raised beds for winter, I found 2 white Gretel eggplant I'd missed earlier.

I was thrilled with the surprise.
So don't give up hope. They were just realy slow this year for some reason.

Despite my low expectations, my eggplants have been massively productive, and I have been harvesting them for several weeks. I believe I have already harvested 6-8 large eggplants per plant, and I still have more that are almost ready. The varieties were Moneymaker and Brabentane.
They were in Mel's Mix, on a double depth bed, and I did give them a lot of water and fed them occasionally with comfrey tea to encourage fruiting. Initially I "helped" pollination with a brush, but then I saw that there were plenty of bees that seemed to love the eggplant flowers, so I left them to their care and it worked beautifully.
