Japanese Eggplant wilting

I have planted Japanese eggplants a month ago. The plant has been doing well. The weather has changed and we are now in low 80F and started wilting. There is a big eggplant growing and it is wilting as well. A few days in a row it was wilting and after watering it would go back to normal, but yesterday I watered it twice and this morning and it doesn't go back. Should I plant it to another spot, take the vegetable off, or at this point there is not use saving it.

A bit of shade cloth might be helpful. Full california sun can be an intense thing.

Make sure you are watering deeply, not just the surface.

You could transplant to a pot in a fully shaded location for a few days and gradually expose it to more light as it seems capable of tolerating. But if you transplant, better pick the fruit.
