Description

A heavy cropping so-called Asian aubergine variety which produces small fruit over a long season making it the most prolific form we’ve trialled. The small fruits are bred for stir-fries and quick cook curries and handy for that, not needing a long slow roast.

Care Tips

Better suited to greenhouse production but if planting outside, cover with a cloche for 2 weeks to allow plants to settle in. Pinch out tips at 45cm and stake. Water well and mist flowers to help fruit set. Feed with high potash until fruits set.
