Thai eggplant same as Lao eggplant?[edit]

After a quick search on google, it would seem that both Thai and Lao eggplants (now a separate article) are the same. If this is indeed the case, does anyone have a good suggestion for merging and also renaming both articles, so as to appease possible nationalistic feelings of both Laotians and Thais? Another quick search on google gave over 15,400 hits for "Thai eggplant" and 121 for "Lao eggplant". - Takeaway (talk) 15:43, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

I've looked through more of the "Lao eggplant" hits from google: many of the hits are mirrors of the wikipedia article "Lao eggplant" or mirrors of the wikipedia article "Thai eggplant" which also mentions "Lao eggplant". Some vegetable seed sites do mention both Lao and Thai eggplants but there seems to be some confusion as to how certain cultivars should be classified as sometimes they are classified on some sites as being Thai and on other sites as being Lao - Takeaway (talk) 17:34, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

September 2014[edit]

User:Minerv recently reworked and renamed the article into one describing the Yellow-fruit nightshade. This appears to be an entirely different subject, and I have reverted the edits, splitting them instead into a new article. The term "Thai eggplant" (มะเขือ) is a loose term describing several Solanum species and cultivars. The scientific name Solanum xanthocarpum was previously incorrectly added to this article, which possibly caused the confusion. --Paul_012 (talk) 18:16, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

I tried researching this with Google. It would seem that nearly everyone is confused, also academic sources. - Takeaway (talk) 18:26, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
