Hi,

I actually know a little bit about this. I've been growing tomatoes, squash, eggplants and peppers for over two decades and managed to learn a few things.

I highly suspect that this is a genetic problem. Seeds contain all of the energy they need for germination and breaking through the soil and producing cotyledon and root stem without much external energy.

Are they ichiban? It sounds to me like your seed source sold you F2 seeds that were produced by a F1 eggplant generation. You cannot use the seeds from a F1 generation and expect a uniform phenotype. The seeds will also very likely contain errors and undesired traits.

Check the variety name online... if it's a F1 hybrid then your seed source probably sold you F2 seeds from a F1 parent. I don't recommend buying your seeds from local farmers. Most of them will not understand genetics and sell you F2 or unstable seeds.

Btw if you are looking for the 'codeproject' for farmers it's over at Tomatoville. Don't let the simple site layout fool you... there are dozens of university professors and agriculture experimentalists on the site. Oregon State University got credit for producing the OSU blue tomato but we were working on it for many years prior over at Tomatoville in cooperation with Tom Wagner.

Best Wishes,
-David Delaune
