It may be too late for eggplant from seed. Most take 70-80 days to get mature fruit from the time of transplant. If you want to try, look for a variety that matures more quickly. Warm to hot weather throughout the season is necessary for good

production. If we get cold temperatures early in the fall, it will stop plant and root growth, reducing plant vigor and yields. LW
