The Ethiopian aubergine is suitable to be eaten raw. Usually these fruits are harvested green before they get a thick skin. An orange-red color develops during ripening. When the fruit is ripe, it can be cooked as a vegetable. Leaves produced by the young plant are edible if cooked properly. The taste is firm, sweetish to slightly bitter. In tropical countries, both the leaf and the fruit are eaten.

We use Solanum aethiopicum exclusively as an ornamental fruit in flower arrangements.

Sow Pumpkin on a Stick seeds from March - April in a seed tray at 20 ° C indoors or later outdoors under glass. After transplanting, transplant indoors in pots.
