|We have several eggplants from our summer garden that are still setting lots of fruit....now they seem to be withering and dying one branch at a time with the immature fruit still on the branch. Is there anything I can do to save my plants? Thanks

|Eggplants should continue to grow and produce until the weather gets cold. If you've had cool weather lately, the plants may simply be reaching the ends of their lifecycles. Only time will tell. With any luck, the plants will continue to produce new growth and ripen those small fruits. If they continue to wither away, it's just that they've reached the ends of their lives. You can replant in late winter or early spring and get a nice crop next year. Enjoy your garden!
