The effects of low temperature on plant growth, pollen viability, pollen quantity and fertility, fruitting of parthenocarpic and non-parthenocarpic eggplant have been studied. A total of 16 genotypes were used. Whether the differences of vegetative and generative developments of parthenocarpic and non-parthenocarpic eggplants will be used or not as morphological marker for selection at breeding studies have been researched.
