Brinjals can also be grown in pots. This means that you can find a sunny, sheltered corner for them. Just ensure that you pack your pots with nutritious organic material and keep them well watered. If so, you should be rewarded with their eye-catching, tasty fruits.
Brinjals will keep for 2 weeks if refrigerated. On cutting a brinjal open, if the seeds inside have turned brown, the fruit is past its prime quality and the flavor may be bitter.
