EGGPLANT-TURKISH ORANGE (aka Mock tomato, Scarlett Eggplant, Ethiopian, Gilo, and garden eggs) is said to originate from Africa but some say Turkey probably due to its popularity in Mediterranean countries. Plants can grow up to 1.2 meters and produce beautiful orange red fruit with green stripes are best eaten green or just turning orange. Their large tennis ball size and sweet fruit makes them perfect for stuffing but also good for grilling, sautéing, baking, frying, pureeing, stewing, and pickling, but will become bitter as it ages.

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
