Still hot off the wire... The news of an experimental eggplant and tomato tree in Sicily may just become all the rage for vegetable gardens the world over. The english version and accompanying image (see link below) is enough to make me a believer, but what piqued my interest in the italian article was the mention of not only one, but several types of eggplant grafts to the rootstock - nostrana (average italian garden variety), melanzana bianca (the white egg-shaped ones), and tunisina. What's tunisina eggplant? It would logically seem to be an eggplant from Tunisia, although I've never heard of such a variety. A very lovely photo can be seen on flickr here.
