    Default Eggplant next year?

    I have a small 6x10' greenhouse (box store plastic variety). I've grown a lot of tomatoes and a few peppers the last 3 years in grow buckets. More tomatoes than I need actually, so next year I'm probably throttling back to 3 tomatoe plants which should make room for something else. I love eggplant. Would this work in grownuckets and be compatible with my setup? Already growing cukes in a 5x5' popup greenhouse and 4 plants make that thing a JUNGLE. Thanks for any advice!!

    I have grown several types of Eggplant, they are somewhat slow to start, but you can grow the real deal. The biggest drawback is aphids.

    Did you grow them outside? Or in a greenhouse??

    They have to be grown in a greenhouse, and you need to start them early too. I think it was Reveena that did really well, I will look at seed packs and if I jog my memory I will post names of others that did well.
    Edit... It was Black Beauty that I liked the most.
