To test whether they're ready for harvest, press the skin with your finger. If the spot stays indented and doesn't spring right back, the eggplant is perfect for picking.
Once the eggplant is ready, harvest by cutting the fruit off the plant with garden shears. Since the plants have sharp spines, it's a good idea to wear garden gloves so that you don't get scraped. You can store eggplant in the refrigerator for a week to 10 days before cooking. It's great in ratatouille, sliced and grilled over a fire or made into baba ghanoush, a classic Middle Eastern dish.
