These are pictures of very attractive eggplants. What do they have in common?
Well, you might say they are all very fruitful. That’s true. You might also say the fruits look so beautiful and blemish-free.
Well, what is also very obvious is that their lower leaves have been removed. This is one practice that the experts have been recommending. After all the lower leaves are no longer functional. They only consume some of the nutrients from the soil. Also, when the lower leaves are removed, there is a better air circulation which is good for the plants. If the old leaves are not removed, they could just be the nesting place of insect pests. So you see, it is a good practice to remove the lower leaves of your eggplant.
