Description

Good, early variety with tasty fruits. It is tolerant of lower temperatures, so can be grown outside, or indoors.

Plant it with basil as they do in Greece, to increase the plant's pollination and general health. I love these griddled with fennel seeds and olive oil and made into a spicy aubergine salad to eat with pitta bread and tsatsiki, or enjoy grilled on the barbecue with mozzarella in stacks.
