I have 3 rosa bianca eggplants that have flowers but are not producing fruit. There are plenty of bees in my borage but the flowers don't appear to be getting pollinized. Do the male flowers come out first like zuchini? Is there a way for me to pollinize them? Guess not, if they are only male flowers. :/

Actually I believe eggplant has a perfect flower, much like a tomato. You could try, I think, using a bloom from the same or another plant to pollinate the flowers. It has been some time since I have grown eggplant, so take this with a grain or shaker of salt. :) Maybe someone with more recent experience will chime in.
