The Q&A Archives: Eggplant

Question: My plants are loosing their leaves and the blossoms are falling of. They otherwise appear healthy and up until now have produced well. What's happening?

Answer: It isn't unusual for the lowest, oldest leaves to die so as long as your plants ares putting out healthy new top growth, I don't think there's anything wrong. As for the falling blossoms, that's usually a response to temperatures over 90F. As things cool off in the next month or so, your eggplants should be able to develop new fruits. Best wishes with your plants!
