The Chinese scarlet egg plant (Solanum intergrifolium) belongs to Solanaceae (the Nightshade family). It is an annual herb that is native to Africa. This herb is closely related to cultivated "eggplant" and its height is about 1 m. Because it is strong, it is used as a rootstock of "eggplant" or cultivated for ornamental use. The fruit changes from white to yellow, orange, red. Also known as "Aka-nasu (red eggplant)", it is also used as a flower material that does not require water, just like "Foxface".
