Everything you need to know about

Eggplant

Versatile eggplant is used in cuisines around the world, and there are almost as many varieties as there are ways to enjoy it. Largest and most common is American globe eggplant, which is nearly identical in shape to its Italian cousin. Japanese eggplant is long and narrow, with fewer seeds, thinner skin, and a milder flavor; Indian eggplant is small, round, and relatively sweet. And don't overlook the baby (or fairy) eggplants, which can be halved and grilled or roasted for a simple, irresistible side.
