White, 2” ball-shaped fruit turn deep yellow as they ripen; a colorful and good-yielding heirloom from Laos. This very rare variety needs to be preserved as it is used in many traditional Laotian recipes.

What are the pros? Resists flea beetle, prolific

What are the cons? Germination rate was just fair

Review:

Received a free sample with an order. Would never have considered this one but will definitely order it again. Usually prefer a large eggplant that I can bake and mash, but this one is perfect for curry dishes and stir fries. Germination was probably only 50-60%, but the plants were vigorous once established and do not have the problem with flea beetle that other eggplants have had here. Plants flower prolifically and set lots of fruit. I harvest before seed are mature, while skin is still tender, and fruits are about the size of an egg.

Review:

I grew these in southern New Brunswick, Canada in 2017. I planted them very late for our growing season (sometime in July if I recall). Mercifully, the frosts held off until the end of September. I didn't think my plants would amount to much but, to my delight, there were many little white "eggs" when I looked under the leaves in late September. If they had more time, I believe these plants would have produced heavily. As it was, I harvested a few handfuls. They look exactly as advertised. I didn't do anything special to grow them - they were planted directly in the ground with no greenhouse or row covers. We had a very dry summer and I wasn't diligent about watering, so I would consider these pretty low-maintenance. I will be growing them next year!
