Seed Saving: beginner
Little Finger Eggplant (Solanum melongena)
Little Finger Eggplant (Solanum melongena): this is a beautiful, miniature eggplant. The plant is slightly smaller than regular eggplants but it is incredibly productive!
The small fruits are very sweet and have very few seeds.
Particularly early and rustic, it fits well in vases due to its size which makes it perfect for balconies. The harvest must be done when they are still young and the skin is very shiny. To get the seeds, allow some of the fruits to ripen on the plant until the skin begins to wrinkle.
Because of its flavour they are great in any recipe.
