Poached Egg Plant

Seeds germinated fine, but the seedlings were wiped out by hot late spring temperatures before the buds open, such a pity. I live in Sydney FYI.

Poached Egg Plant

The germination rate is great. The flower is very tiny and takes a bit longer to flower. Seeds themselves are perfect. But i am not keen to grow it again.
