First Stripey Aubergine Appears

Some while after the lovely Aubergine (Eggplant) flowers appeared the stripey fruits are slowly emerging.

I hadn't noticed before just how sharp those small needles are on the enveloping leaves. Obviously there to protect the young fruit from predatory birds etc.

These plants do attract greenfly but otherwise seem to be quite trouble free (so far).
