Official Name: Solanum ovigerum

General description: Also known as Ornamental Eggplant, or the scientific Solanum ovigerum, these "Easter egg plants" are really a type of miniature eggplant. The size of a hen's eggs, the small fruits start out white but then ripen into pretty pastel shades including cream, orange, yellow, and green.

How to grow:

Grow “Easter Egg” plants in a bed that receives at least six hours of direct daily sunlight to ensure best growth. Work in a 2-inch layer of compost to improve drainage and soil conditions, and add 1/3 pound 12-12-12 fertilizer per every 10 square feet of garden before planting.

Cover the soil with a 2-inch layer of straw mulch to help insulate the soil and retain moisture. Pull the mulch back slightly so it doesn't rest against the eggplant stems, which can result in stem-rot problems.

Water the eggplant about once weekly, or when the soil begins to dry to a 1-inch depth. Supply each plant with about 1 inch of water or enough to moisten the top 6 to 8 inches of soil.

Monitor the plants for slug and snail damage, which shows as chewed leaves and slimy trails on foliage. Set out slug traps or bait, following package instructions, to manage slugs in the garden, or pick them from the plants by hand after the sun has set. A flashlight makes it easier to find the pests.

Harvest the fruit when they develop a cream, yellow or orange exterior, approximately 54 days after planting. Cut each mature eggplant from the branch with shears. Pulling on the eggplants may break branches and cause plant damage.

Benefits: Solanum ovigerum is a very good source of dietary fibre, potassium, manganese, iron, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus. It is also a good source of vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin C, E and K among others
