Can you help me keep this plant alive? I was told it was an "Easter Egg" plant, with small eggs that turn from white to yellow to brown. I don't know what it is, nor how to keep it from dying- all the leaves are falling off. It's such a cool plant and I don't want to give up on it! Help!

There's not a lot of detailed information out there on this plant. The University of Florida Extension Service has some information at:

Basically, it's an eggplant! (But the fruit is inedible...) They are annuals, so there may not be much you can do to keep it alive - harvest seeds and start new ones is likely your best option I think...
