Effects of Low-Temperature Stress on Fertility and Fruiting of Eggplant (Solanum melongena) in a Subtropical Climate*

  • J. Nothmann (a1) and D. Koller (a1)

Low-temperature stress in eggplant during the cool season causes gradual loss of pollen fertility and leads to the development of seedless fruit, but female fertility is not similarly affected. The temperature-induced male sterility is transient, and full pollen fertility is regained with normal seed development, as temperature conditions improve.
