willing to swop a couple of crystal lemon cucumber seeds if anyone has any nice aubergine's - violetta (violet or violet striped) or a nice white small variety?

The small white aubergine is lovely and tender with no bitterness and we ate a lot while in Thailand with my son, so I was looking in all the gardening shops for a packet of the same. I didn't get a huge crop, but they did better than the English bought ones last summer, which wasn't particularly warm or sunny here. They were quite happy growing both in the border and in tubs in the greenhouse. The colour of the long purple ones seemed to be quite variable, but they also set quite a few fruit and were also a good flavour.

Hope they do OK
