The first time I saw this plant I thought it just a ripe tomatoes but i was wrong, according to the vendor what I saw was tomatoes and eggplants. Crossbreeding/mix breeding was very popular in their place and this is one of them. I thought its only popular in dog or cats, now thay doing in vegetables and fruits too. Anyway 2 vegetables in only plants is good I think.

They look amazing. I think the whites are the eggplants and the red or dark orange are the tomatoes. I have seen white long eggplants but those in your picture are white but small round eggplants.

@Bhebelen14 it's a normal or common size for the tomatoes but not for the eggplants.

@magallon Yes, they are too small for size of a normal eggplant.

You can make a dish from the fruits of one plant! Is that genetically-modified plant?

Eggplant, tomatoes. Chili peppers are very closely related and would you believe potatoes? Chili pepper is a tomato that adopted and produced capsaicin an irritant and causes hotness in chili or pepper spray. That is very possible although i have not seen one myself, nature really has a lot of surprises.

Tomatoes and eggplants are of the same family (Solanaceae, or nightshades). We have several fruit trees that produce two different kind of fruits.
