- DescriptionThai eggplant can easily be distinguished from other eggplant varieties by its shape, size and stem. It may be stir-fried, grilled, cooked as tempura or used in creamy Asian soups and curries. It's seedy but its flesh softens rather quickly and absorbs flavors well. There's also no need to peel the skin before cooking. (from Vega Produce)
- More Information
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.
