Thai Kermit Eggplant is an hybird version of Thai round eggplant. Thai Kermit resembles a green and white ping pong ball. Sometimes called bitter ball or garden egg.
It has a green and white variegated skin and the fruit, when eaten young has an excellent flavor either fresh or cooked.
The plant is compact, height is between 2 1/4 and 3 1/2 feet. It has multiple branches which are highly prolific in producing their bounty of little green Kermit eggplants.
For best results keep well harvested, allowing produce to linger on the vine too long will slow down subsequent eggplant production. Overly ripe eggplants of this cultivar also are less appealing so far as taste goes, although not unpalatable.
The eggplants themselves are approximately 2" round and weigh less than an ounce each. They are commonly used in the Asian culinary realm for curry dishes,stews and soups, pickled and served a la carte.
