Reviewer 2 Report

Authors have done a great job in evaluating resistance of 47 accessions of eggplant to bacterial wilt which provide important information for future agriculture production and application, however, it lacks the significance and rationale of study in the introduction, and I recommend the authors to rewrite the introduction part. Additionally, there are some grammatical typos and wrong usage of tense in several sentences which also need to be addressed in the revised version of the manuscript.

Additionally, there are some grammatical typos and wrong usage of tense in several sentences which also need to be addressed in the revised version of the manuscript. 

Introduction part contains general information on bacterial wilt pathogen, symptoms, control methods, breeding for resistance to bacterial wilt in eggplant, problems related to research topic, and objective. We agree with the reviewer and have added in the some information on eggplant wild relatives and their importance in breeding. Additionally, we have fixed the grammatical typos in the manuscript.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to revise again this manuscript and we look forward to working with you and the reviewers to move this manuscript closer to publication in the Journal of Agriculture.
