but at some point, each of the fruit turns a nasty yellow/olive green colour. They look like they have jaundice!
It is true that the eggplants have had a tough time this year. They were raised in Sydney and transported in pots on the back of a ute to the new patch and got a bad case of windburn in the process but they quickly settled into their bed and got growing and flowering. They have suffered thru a particularly hot and dry summer (as have most of us here in Australia) on the other hand eggplants are pretty tough and somewhat designed to cope with the heat with their furry leaves.
If anyone has any insight into this nasty discolouration of my eggplant, I'd be grateful.
