There are many chennaites here. I am sure they will respond too.

I would say go for brinjal, tomato( the country one that is heat resistant), okra, and all types of gourds.

Hello Murali,

I am from Chennai. As far as brinjal or any other plants, I would recommend that we go for country varieties and not for the hybrid ones.

I have sown bitter gourd now. Will share details, when they sprout.

Regards

Jay

From my experiment with vegetables in Chennai Okra survives the heat here , Brinjal requires watering twice a day ,Raddish is another easy to grow , my first attempt at string beans was very successful they appear to be pest resistant, of course the keerai are always the easy ones.
