- These tender graffiti egglants are beautifully streaked with purple and white. Lush and creamy, with a mild, earthy flavor, eggplant have the most velvety texture in the vegetable family. Eggplant is high in healthy fiber. We love it sliced, brushed with olive oil and salt, and grilled or roasted.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.
