Been collecting Solanums for a couple of years and I bought seeds for Solanum marginatum in the fall. I have a couple of heatlhy plants, but there are no "margins". There are also no thorns. Confused Does anyone know what this could be?

I think you are correct; how disappointing. I don't like eggplant so I don't grow it but I will this one out of curiosity.
Thank you.
