you can grow almost any kind of eggplants in containers.
Now you need to get you container and soil ready so that you can plant
your plants in the container. Here is the size container you need to grow eggplant in containers. Size of container is 3 gallon to 5 gallon pots.
The soil that you need is pro mix or miracle grow potting soil.
And the fertilizer you can use is a slow release fertilizer like osmocoat.
And you can now fiil the container with your potting soil and then take about
4 to 6 eggplants plants and start to plant them in the container that you filled with soil. You start by planting one plant in the center of the pot and the other
eggplants plant around the outter edge of the pot keep them evenly seperated from each other in the container. Now after you got the plants planted you can put about 2 teaspoons of osmotcote fertilizer in the container.
After that take and water the plants in the container very well then let the pot drain over night. Keep in the shade and keep evenly moist until well estabish

fertilize with liquid fertilizer like mircle grow or peters fertilizer.
It will take about sixty days until you can start picking eggplants from the plants in the containers. If you pick them when they are smaller than the eggplants will keep producing until frost. I hope this information will help you
