- Grown on the North Fork of Long Island by Danny Latham and his wife Patty, these local little finger eggplants are mildly sweet, moist and never bitter. Because of their small size, the silky flesh is especially tender and will cook quickly. Try them sliced, brushed with olive oil and salt, and grilled or roasted. They also make a great addition to curries and stir-fries.Origin
Eggplant is tropical in origin, so it does not agree well with extreme cold. For this reason, a whole eggplant will last better and longer out of the refrigerator but in a cool place 50 degrees is ideal. On the countertop, eggplant should keep for about 3 days. If storing cut eggplant, wrap in plastic and place in the least cool section of the refrigerator.
