Grower Information: Vegetarians and foodies will love using this eggplant to make tasty, meatless “meatballs.” The 2-lb. (1-kg) fruit has a high moisture content to slow oxidization, so it won’t turn brown quickly and stays fresher looking for longer. Low seed count means the fruit is less bitter, making it perfect for preparing dishes like eggplant “burgers.”
