Frieda's Specialty Produce - White Eggplant

Overview

What is a White Eggplant?

  • A member of the nightshade family, which includes tomatoes, peppers and potatoes, the eggplant is technically a fruit but is commonly considered a vegetable. While purple is the most common color for eggplant, white-skinned varieties provide a beautiful and striking contrast. Although the flavor is essentially the same, whether purple or white, some say the white varieties have a more tender, slightly sweeter flesh, but with a tougher skin.

How to Eat

  • Stuff, bake, broil, marinate and sauté. Eggplant makes a good meat substitute in Italian dishes.

Health Benefits

  • Good source of fiber.

How to Choose

  • Choose eggplant that feels firm and heavy.

How to Store

  • Refrigerate up to 1 week.
