Is that why they call it a "little finger?" Maybe, like banana clusters, what you have is a "hand." Nonna

Oh, how great. That must be why they have that name, they are like fingers on one 'hand.'

I hope to see further pictures as they mature.

No, I really don't think they are supposed to look like that! I grew them last year and they were all single fruits. Here are two pics of what all the rest look like right now. The second one isn't the best pic:
ETA: I just did a google search of little finger eggplant pictures and none looked like the triplet!!

I grilled some "Little Fingers" Smile the other night and we found them inedible. They were very bitter. I usually salt the black beauties but I didn't think I had to with these. We are going to try them again, salted, and if we still have the same problem I am pulling the plant. How do you cook them?

Wow,how pretty they are! That's not as uncommon as you'd think, though. The first ten or fifteen squash blossoms I had on my crookneck plant were all twins! Both male and female. Unfortunately, with the twin females, only one of the squash would really grow; the other would maybe grow a little and then wither away Sad
