Hard boiled (egg)plant

Hard boiled (egg)plant, originally uploaded by framboise.

The potential fruit of this plant has had a progression of names that track the continents I’ve lived on. It’s the brinjal of my childhood, aubergine of my twenties and now eggplant of my thirties.

I now need a new continent and local name for Solanum melongena for my forties.

(Incidentally, yes, I know it’s going to grow to be a monster… That little patch needs more shade anyway. So, grow away little brinjal!)
