Eggplants?also known as aubergine or brinjal?are warm-weather vegetables that are harvested in mid- to late summer.
Given their tropical and subtropical heritage, eggplants do require relatively high temperatures, similar to?tomatoes?and?peppers?(which, like eggplants, are?in the Nightshade family). They grow fastest?when temperatures are between 70 and 85?F (21 and 30?C)?and very slowly during cooler?weather.
Like tomatoes and peppers, eggplants develop and hang?from the branches of a plant that grows several feet in?height.
