where to find "makhua phuang"/pea eggplant
Is it ok to resurrect a 6 year old question that was not answered? I just got back from my 6th trip to Thailand, and am dying to find MaKhua Phuang, tiny green pea eggplants. I am in Northern NJ, but will travel to NY, NJ, or CT.
I am assuming this question was never answered because I read they are not allowed to import these. I was hoping they may grow these in Florida, like they do the green golf-ball-sized eggplants, Ma-kuea, which are easy to find in Chinatown or Terri Lee Grocery in Maywood, NJ.
Anyone have a source for makhua phuang?
Thanks for teaching me something new today...I have never seen/read about these before. A quick Google found this thread, but the OP is from Sweden: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/851319
Sound like you need a Thai market...anyone? I'm wondering if H-Mart (Edison) would have them or at least know where to send you...
