The eggplant crops are more earning good price than other crops. The eggplant price is ranging between K250-K300 per fruit depending upon its sizes. The eggplant seeds are being cultivated in line. There will be no damage when the eggplant is growing with bamboo poles to keep plants upright and fruit clean and intact. The brown eggplant is popular because they taste better than other eggplant species. That is the reason, brown eggplants are highly demanded by the commodity traders from Minbu town.
