Nipple Fruit Eggplant

1 Review | Write a Review
(Solanum mammosum) This is one of the most amazing plants I have grown. Beautiful tall, thorny plants bear purple flowers, followed by long spikes of 3” yellow fruit that are curiously shaped, sort of like a cow’s udder and glowing yellow-orange in color. These 2’-5’ stems are sold for display in arrangements or alone. They fetch top prices at stores and are great for farmers’ markets. I first saw these in Thailand several years ago being sold as potted plants along a road. The long-lasting, bitter fruit are not edible.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Never produced


Don't bother trying this plant unless you live in a zone above 8 - or start your seeds super early. The plant is huge! It grows to the size of a small apple tree. But unfortunately our first freeze hit just as the plants were beginning to fruit in November. If I had the space to sacrifice and could get the plant to a decent size indoors before putting out, I may try to see if I can get a fruit to maturity, but I highly doubt that I will grow again. This is a plant designed for very warm climates.
