Solanum quitoense (Naranjilla)

Solanum quitoense (Naranjilla)

Spectacular giant purplish fuzzy

and spiny leaves on this eggplant relative. Fruits in its second year.
Plants do not last long if nematodes present in soil.

Fruit is edible and produces a flavourful juice.

We recommend growing these in conjunction with Tagetes ground control , A Dutch cultivar breed of marigolds grown specifically for maximum control of nematodes in vegetables. 

  • Approximate minimum seed count per pack


  • Germination

    sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 20-25 degrees C. Seeds sometimes germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some may take very much longer so please be patient. Plant out in the open ground in warmer countries or in a large container elsewhere.
