eggplant stock remaining in the ground over winter

Is it possible to leave eggplant plants in the ground over winter if I cut them back to one foot above ground and expect then to produce next summer?

Eggplants as perennials NEW

Absolutely sure thing. Eggplants and others of similar family like tomatoes, peppers and okra all will survive a few years in warm climates. Best to give a GOOD prune back before too much growth in early spring, lots of food, especially in 2nd and 3rd years, then watch whilst you get great crops again! Not sure how many years you can keep going, but in my experience 2-3 seems the best otherwise the stems get huge, woody and crack.
