Growing eggplant indoors in cooler temps?

Post  fireboy on 8/13/2011, 3:15 am

I need to know if this is do-able or not:
Growing black beauty eggplant indoors with the average temp is 40 to 50 degrees in the winter.
I've read here that eggplants like really warm weather, but I would like to know if someone has had luck with them at cooler temps? And maybe tell how they managed it.
Thank in advance.

Thanks camprn and littlejo, I was sure hoping I could do that.
I think that would be a lot of fun, but guess not.
