It can be hit hard or killed by frosts, so plant it well after the last frost-free date in your area.
Eggplant grows best when it has constant moisture and the soil is not allowed to dry out between waterings. To keep an eye on the situation, use a moisture meter to monitor the soil. Set the probe of the meter about 6" into the soil to give a good indication of the moisture level at the eggplant's root. Whenever the meter veers towards low, water thoroughly. A moisture meter costs only a few dollars and will save you a lot in the long run, since you won't be tempted to overwater and thus waste time and money.
