This upright plant is tall and produces small size eggplants, 60-80 grams in weight, with nearly white skin and light green stripped shoulder. This variety grows vigorously in warm climates and produces fruits for many months. Small size eggplants are very popular in Thai cooking. This unique plant with lots of white small fruits is also a very attractive container plant for the front doorsteps and the backyard garden.
