    Your comment on the answer suggests you're looking for a means of preservation that doesn't involve pickling or extensive preparation. Can you clarify your question? It may simply not be possible to keep a whole eggplant for a month unless you keep it on the plant. – logophobe Jun 13 '14 at 14:45
  • if i keep in plant will be fully grow and it will became a seed of the egg plant sir – Spynet Jun 16 '14 at 4:41

There's a Sicilian preservation of eggplant called Melanzane Sott’Olio. It's similar to giardiniera, but after pickling, you pack it in oil.

Because of the botulism risk of putting garlic in oil, it's considered risky for long-term storage (more than a week, and that's refrigerated), even though it was used in Sicily for generations. You might be able to replace the garlic with something safer, or omit it entirely.
