I planted 2 purple eggplant in February. The plants have grown nicely and appear healthy. For the past 7-8 weeks, both plants have been full of flowers, but no eggplant have set. What do I need to do?

Extreme heat (over 90F) will keep eggplants from setting fruit. Lack of insect pollination can cause the same problem. There's nothing you can do about the weather but you can attract pollinating insects with lots of colorful flowers in your garden. Hope this helps!
