Does anyone knows how long a naranjila (Solanum quitoense) takes to get fully ripened? It started fruiting in may this year and in june i got four fullgrown but still green fruits. Today we're allready half november and the plant is still bearing the same, green fruits. Or did I got a variety that has fruits that stay green even when ripe?
Ripening of naranjila
Since nobody's answered, I'll take a guess; 4-6 months. Never bothered to check mine from start to finish.
Funny, almost all photos show no spines covering the fruit!
Thanks for answering :)
At this moment the fruits are still green, although one of them seems to fade to a lighter hue of green. Never got a chance to eat those fruits so it would be great if one of them makes it before fungus and other deseases start their attacks...
