Answer: Eggplant starts as a small transplant and eventually by fall becomes a small bush (about 2' wide x 2' high). If grown in warmer areas, it's actually a perennial shrub. So, you can grow it in a large container such as a 1/2 whiskey barrel, or in the garden in full sun, with lots of fertility. The long, thin Asian types are a bit easier to grow and produce than the traditional black, teardrop-shaped types.
