    This paper presents a morphological and cytogenetic account of Solanum incanum, S. melongena variety Giant of Banaras and their F1 hybrid. A close inter-relationship between the two species is recognized and hybrid vigour for height of plant and number of branches, flowers and fruits as well as for resistance against drought and fruit and shoot borers is demonstrated.
