The name translates as “land of four rivers” and is the anglicised form of Sichuan, where this variety was collected. Discovered in Chengdu by Joy Larkcom in 1994, it produces compact plants (around 45-60cm in height) and long (20-25cm), slim, pointed fruits that begin porcelain white, turning purple only when the direct sun reaches the skin. They need no salting and are not bitter, ideal for moussaka, ratatouille, and as dip.
