- The violet streaked skin and creamy flavor make the fairy tale eggplant one of our favorite varieties. With few seeds and tender skin, these gems are perfect for a quick summer side dish.Claims
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.
