I am growing an Easter egg plant indoors and the flowers come out and fall off, but no fruit have grown. I wonder if anyone has a solution to this problem?

Hi, I have one. It has flowered several times(beautiful delicate purple flowers) but mine have never turned to fruit. I assume this is my fault, for not watering consistently. I have had it for a year and its 1-2 feet tall. My cats have also snacked on the leaves...quite a hearty plant :-) I am sure you will do better!

Easter Egg Plants will get their beautiful egg flowers when you grow them outside. I have mine on my deck facing south, southwest and the eggs are absolutely gorgeous and getting bigger every day. LIKE ALL PLANT LIFE, THE EASTER EGG PLANT NEEDS TO BE POLLINATED!!! When indoors they get their flowers and that's the lot. I give away and sometimes sell my Egg plants. I start my seeds indoors in peapods then plant them in pots. The larger the pot the bigger the plant grows and has many more eggs. This year I kept one plant with eggs not for her seeds, I have lots of seeds. I want to see how she will be over the winter indoors, something new for me. p.s. I found out the hard way, they don't like the frost...lol...thanks for reading...Patty

I planted the seeds from an egg from a friends plant they grew. I had 24 plants, gave most away. The ones I kept all had eggs on them after the flower and they grew white and turned a deep yellow. They grow outside in garden well too. They have eggs on them to. East window in house. Did water about every 3 rd day.

Flowers need to be pollinated by bees or other insects. You can pollinate them with a Q-tip yourself, rub the inside of the flowers delicately with the same end of one Q-tip. Google this process if you need further help, I'm sure there are videos

My Grandmother had these all over the house. They require lots of sun and she used to water with cold tea. The eggs eventually turn yellow and fall off. The seeds inside the overripe eggs can now be planted again. They honestly look like a real egg hanging off of a vine.

I have three Easter egg plants that I started in my Areo Grow. I used three seeds per pod and all three grew, yet I kept the strongest of the three and they are doing well. I have since planted one of the plants in a flower pot with soil. It too is doing well. I am waiting for warmer weather to plant all the seeds outdoor. Just don't put the plant in full sunshine, it doesn't like it.

Now I am just anxious to see the flowers grow and then the fruit. Have fun with these great plants. Karyn

It needs to germinate.

Growing an Easter Egg Plant
I have just purchased seeds for the Easter Egg Plant. I have seen this plant once and it is very beautiful. Has anyone tried to grow this plant indoors and how did it turn out? Any tips and tricks to share about growing and the care of this beauty would be appreciated.

I grew a plant from my plant once, but it was weak and eventually died. I live in northern Michigan and I think it was too late in the season. Maybe you could save the seeds to restart. Also, where did you purchase your seeds? I once saw them @ Walmart, but nothing since. Thanks. (02/27/2009)

I think this is a form of eggplant. They're easy to grow (in the South where I live) outside, but I don't know about indoors. (02/27/2009)

You can purchase the seeds though Burgess seeds. Yes, they are edible, and are grown outside as an annual for this. Can be grown as a house plant, but it will have to be pollinated to bear "eggs". (03/01/2009)

I bought my seeds at Walmart. I am also using my aero garden to grow the seeds. It has been 5 days and nothing yet, but it says 7 - 14 days to germinate. Someone mentioned lots of sun, and with the aero garden, that won't be an issue indoors. I am anxious to see these seeds grow. (03/02/2009)

My mom has an Easter egg plant inside it now stands at over 5 feet and has lots of orange eggs on it. I sent her the seed as a joke, but guess the joke is on me. So yes they an be grown inside if you have lots of room. (03/15/2010)
