Small, egg-shaped, good tasting fruit that are attractively streaked with purple and white.


Solanum melongena

This short-statured aubergine produces attractive, roundish, purple and white striped fruit that taste like a standard aubergine. The fruit are small – so no wastage when cooking – and are best harvested when about 50 to 55cm in diameter.

The almost spineless plants grow into a tidy, small bush, reaching a height of about 40cm. This means they are perfect for container growing or for small greenhouses. Despite their small-stature plants will need some support to ensure they stay upright.

Approximate number of seeds per pack: 10
