Eggplant today is a highly diverse crop widely cultivated around the globe. While eggplant generally grows best in dependably warm and settled weather, we trial varieties for performance in less favorable conditions, as well as for superior flavor and appearance. We also identify which varieties are best for field, greenhouse, and container production. To compare key characteristics, refer to our Eggplant Variety Comparison Chart.
