The seeds are scattered through the fruit, embedded in a firm placenta.
.Many seeds are formed in a single fruit (800-1000 in long brinjal and 1000-1500 in round brinjal.
The harvested fruits are stored for three to four days until they become soft. This allows the seed to mature fully. The top one-third of the fruit is removed since it contains almost no seed. Then seeds are extracted by suitable methods.
