Yellow-to-purple Eggplants when they should be white-to-purple?
Pedasí, Los Santos, Panamá
Hello, We're growing Eggplants in a dry-tropical climate in Pedasí, Panamá. Initially the first fruits on the plants changed from white to purple as they were maturing. But subsequent fruits are changing from yellow to purple and do not seem to be maturing fully (they stay hard for a long time, they don't get soft like the white/purple eggplants). Any ideas why this is happening and what the remedy might be? Thank you!
