Melissa’s White Eggplant is firm, heavy and dense with thick skin. Eggplant, often thought of as a vegetable is really a fruit related to potatoes, tomatoes and peppers. Native to Southern and Southeastern Asia, White Eggplant has been used by Indian, Chinese and Japanese cooks for thousands of years. Interchangeable in many favorite eggplant recipes, White Eggplant is distinguishable by its white color which changes to a beige or gray color when cooked. This eggplant is delicious steamed, broiled and baked. When cooked, the white eggplant has a sweet, meaty and mild flavor tasty any time of year.

White Eggplant from Melissa’s is hand-selected for excellent quality. Choose eggplant that is heavy for size with firm, and strikingly shinny. Store in a cool place in a plastic bag, not the refrigerator. Eat within the first 36 hours.
