10 Seeds Solanum macrocarpon African Eggplant description and characteristics:
Germination: Soak seeds for 3-6 hours in lukewarm water. Cover only slightly with substrate: coir or sowing mix + sand or perlite. Keep bright and constantly moist but not wet. Germination takes 3-6 weeks.
A herbaceous, shrubby perennial to 1.5 m in tall, native to and popular in West Africa but rarely cultivated in other tropical regions of the world for its edible, medicinal and ornamental qualities.
It has oval-shaped leaves with waxy margins and white to purple flowers, followed by round, edible fruits, which mature from greenish-white to yellow or yellowish-brown.
Solanum macrocarpon fruits can be eaten raw or cooked in many different ways- boiled, steamed, pickled, or added to stews but the leaves, cooked as a vegetable are perhaps even more popular. Both the leaves and the fruit have a somewhat bitter flavor.
