A rare African eggplant relative with young leaves cooked much like collard greens.
A short perennial or annual to 2-4ft. Large green leaves shade the golf ball sized yellow ripening fruits that have a bitter taste. A very ornamental plant, both for leaves but also for its large flowers and pretty fruits.
Unknown. Probably not frost hardy, but can be grown anywhere as an annual.
Does well in places eggplants do well. Grow in full sun, water moderately. Not too picky about soil type.
The young leaves were once a popular food in parts of West Africa. The plant is now very difficult to find but makes a worthy and interesting garden specimen.
Native to Togo.
