Eggplant - Solanum torvum

 

Noong Ta Klong Pea - This variety was located growing semi-wild in a village garden in Noong Ta Klong, Thailand. Used underripe, it is a crucial ingredient in many Thai dishes including green curry & some types of chili sauces. Bitter & seedy, these peasized eggplants pop when you bite them. With a mouthful of coconut curry, the right amount of chili & fish sauce, your taste buds go crazy. Fairly early to flower & mature. Very ornamental & unique foliage. Harvest for eating when fruit is bright green & for seeds when fruit turns orange with ripeness. We do not recommend eating fruit once it has turned orange.
