Eggplants, photo and a question

I'd love to tell you that I grew these lovely 6-8 inch tall eggplant seedlings, but I'd be lying. I saw them in the grocery store and couldn't resist.

These are the eggplants I started 6 weeks ago under grow lights. The tomatoes I started at the same time are already 6 inches tall and in the cold frame. These are growing under growlights, in my probably too cool basement which has stayed around 60 degrees day and night. Is the temperature the reason they are growing so slowly, or do eggplants and peppers take much longer than tomatoes to reach a decent size?
