Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) was efficiently regenerated from cultured roots of 15-d-old seedlings on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium containing 0.45 {\mu}M thidiazuron and 13.3 {\mu}M 6-benzyladenine. Within 28d of culture initiation, induction of organogenic calluses and subsequent differentiation into shoot buds were observed.Shoot buds upon subculture to MS basal medium elongated into healthy shoots.Excised shoots (2-4 cm) were rooted on Soilrite(R) irrigated with water either in vitro or in vivo. Plants with well-developed root systems were established under field conditions after hardening in the glasshouse, where they developed into flowering plants and produced mature fruits with viable seeds.
