Other info: After speaking via email with a customer, who said she enjoyed using solanum integrifolium for fall usage in her cut displays, I decided to try it as well. After further study I see that Solanum aethiopicum and Solanum integrifolium are the same. It is said that the plants are not much to look at, and if they are anything like the regular eggplant that I've tried growing, the plants themselves are enjoyed by certain chewing insects. But the fruits resemble miniature pumpkins on a stick and can be used in fall floral decorations or arrangements.
