Eggplants (Solanum melongena L.) have become in the last years one of the most appreciated vegetables worldwide due to their high nutritional value. Eggplant fruits contain significant amounts of carbohydrates, mineral salts, vitamins and polyphenols. In order to increase productive potential of eggplant, it is necessary to ensure the optimal level for all the environmental factors as well as the specific technological ones. Soil is the main source of mineral nutrients and water for plants, its ability to provide the needed nutrients varies depending on its level of fertility. Eggplant fruit quality is determined by nutrients quantity and quality. In addition, at the University of Life Sciences from Iasi, an experiment was carried out during 2020-2021 growth season with the purpose to investigate the effect of three different fertilization regimes on the fruit quality and fruit yield and its component of eggplant cultivar Mirval F1 and Bleach Pearl F1 under tunnels. The research indicated significant values in terms of quality and quantity for the microbiologically fertilized Mirval hybrid.
