Giant Green Cambodian Eggplant (Solanum melongena)
Giant Green Cambodian Eggplant (Solanum melongena): extraordinarily tasty and beautiful eggplant from Cambodia. The fruit is large, round, and slightly ribbed, it can weight up to 1 kg. It displays a beautiful green color that fades into white.
The pulp is tender, sweet, and fragrant -unlike average eggplants- which makes it suitable for quick cooking, and great in any recipe, stuffed or fried.
The plant is tall and vigorous, it can get up to 1.20 mt, and holds lots of large leaves. It can be cultivated in large pots , because the bright fruits stand out from the dark leaves and make it extremely ornamental.
It takes 90 days from transplant to maturity, and produces about 5 fruits per plant.
