Eggplants are quite happy in containers, but choose plants with smaller fruit, such as ‘White Star’ or Lebanese eggplants.

Harvest fruit when the skin is smooth. If it starts to wrinkle, the flesh will be coarse and tough.
The fruit stalks are hard and woody, so cut them with a pair of secateurs to avoid damaging the plant.
