This South Asian variety is early and tender. 3-4" long goose-egg shaped fruit are strikingly beautiful purple with white stripes. Best picked on the small side. The skin can get thick on larger fruits but the flavor is still rich and wonderful. Unique delicious flavor when used in curries and chutneys. Best cooked before white-to-light-green stripes turn yellow, which is when the seeds are mature. Named after a village in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, where it is from. Aka, Udmalbet.
