Hi, I planted 4 Eggplant and they grew well, flowered and set green fruit which have now turned yellow instead of black, what has happened, is it my fault or was the weather too hot or what, I am so disappointed.

Eggplants turning yellow reason NEW
by: Anonymous

They love hot weather and mine grow further north in Aust than you. They don't like too much humidity and temp changes though. Mostly it sounds like your eggplants are overripe, which is when they turn yellow or sometimes a pale pink or white colour.

Every site I have seen says they are overripe...well they went from green to yellow never turning the dark purple I usually get.. No time to get ripe never mind overripe. I am not the only gardener I my area this has happened to. Stumped...
