About a month ago, the first aubergine flower appeared. I tickled it and waited for a purple fruit to follow.
The flower dropped off and so did the next. But then one didn’t. Instead the base grew fatter and harder and I became hopeful that this time would be different.
Indeed it is. This afternoon I came home to a bit of shiny purple sticking out of the base. So I might be in for an aubergine curry yet!
What is your favourite aubergine dish?
