Aubergines or eggplants contribute to the diversification of range of vegetables, they can be cultivated in all crop systems, and fruit sell well and with profit on domestic and foreign markets. World production of eggplant has increased lately, knowing a steady increase. Eggplants is consumed in different quantities in different areas. Thus, average consumption is 1.5 kg/year/inhabitant in Southeast Asia, 5 kg in Japan, 9-10 kg in the Middle East and 3 kg in Western Mediterranean countries. From eggplants, the fruit is consumed at maturity of consumption, being used for preparation of food: salad, moussaka, vegetable mash, stuffed eggplants and mixed with other vegetables are used in preparation of canned foods. Eggplant cultivation is practiced in field, and cultivation in solariums is practiced in order to obtain early productions. Older varieties of varieties are no longer cultivated due to low productivity and low resistance to diseases and pests, which have led to the creation of varieties and hybrids with high productivity and resistance. Experience was carried out in 2017, in a vegetable microfarm, in Husasau de Tinca, Bihor County, a favorable area for eggplant culture due to specific pedoclimatic conditions.
