Our rosa bianca eggplants have been bearing many, many fruit. According to the Burpee website, they are supposed to be rosy-lavender with white shading. Cough cough. Do you call this rosy-lavender with white shading?
Then we have the turkish orange eggplant, also from Burpee. According to the website, the fruit is supposed to be round (3″) and red-orange. The photo on the Burpee website shows eggplants that look like stripey tomatoes! Unless “orange” in Turkey means “purple”, or all Turkish people are colour-blind, I think our turkish orange eggplants are turkish purple!
I kept telling Mummy they would turn orange (in case she chopped the lying plant down), but I am giving up hope. You look for yourself below:
Oh, we do have one truthful eggplant in the garden. Our faithful Malaysian eggplant, which Mummy’s secretary said would give purplish long fruit, really does produce purplish long fruit. Here it is.
