Description
Who knew the Solanum family was so vast and varied?! If you eat with your eyes, we doubt the unusual fruits in this exclusive eggplant collection will make it to your plate, but you’ll have great fun growing these oddities and showing them off at the end of the season. These plants will thrive in a sunny spot in the garden or in a warm greenhouse. Create a fun decorative fruit bowl for autumn display or use the fruits of S. aethiopicum as a mini ‘pumpkin-on-a-stick’ gift for Halloween visitors – we’ll let you decide to flag it as a trick or a treat!! Height and Spread: 120cm (47")

Sowing
Train Solanum against sturdy supports such as trellis or strong wires attached to walls and pergolas. Grow in a fertile, moist, free draining soil in a sunny position, preferably against a south-facing wall. When planting Solanum in poor soils, add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve the soil structure.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until established. Prune Solanum plants back to a pair of healthy buds after flowering, cutting shoots to within three or four buds of the permanent framework. Thin out overcrowded shoots. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant in spring. Caution: All parts are harmful if eaten.
