Description

An attractive variety from Spain or Italy.

Purple fruits with white streaks. Great flavour with sweet, tender flesh.

Harvesting seed

Continue growing far past maturity if you want to save seeds. The seeds need to go through a process similar to natural rotting so store the fruit at room temperature for a few weeks before removing the seeds.

Scoop out the seeds and pulp in a water filled bowl to form a slurry of seeds and flesh. Allow the seeds to settle in the bottom. Repeat a few times until the seeds are separated. Strain, rinse and then leave to dry.

Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark and dry place.
