Eggplant is a warm season vegetable that requires a relatively long growing season to produce economic yields. The plant is very tender to frost and easily injured by long periods of cold temperatures below 50°F. Eggplants are more sensitive to low temperature than either tomatoes or peppers. The French call eggplants “Aubergines”, us Cajuns, we call them “Brahams”
