Can I grow eggplant year round in zone 9b? I’m hoping to use cuttings taken from existing plants. Thanks

I grow mine in a pot and bring them in for winter. I am not sure about cuttings, but I have had a mature plant produce two years in a row growing it that way. Same for tomatoes. Fun to have fresh

YES! I lived in zone 9 in Florida. You can most definitely grow them. Start your seeds indoors in early January and put them out in mid February. They will be producing by April and over it by mid June when your temps start in the 90s. I then always planted okra in June where the eggplants were. They were a nice succession planting in zone 9.

Probably not, Most crops are seasonal, usually temperature reasons. Very few crops produce all year.
