Hepworth Farms Local Organic Eggplant
  • Description

    Lush and creamy, with a mild, earthy flavor, eggplant has the most velvety texture in the vegetable family. It's high in healthy fiber. We love it sliced, brushed with olive oil and salt, and grilled or roasted. We also love it breaded, fried, and smothered in fried onions. Come to think of it, we just plain love it.

    Established in 1818, Hepworth Farms is one of the premier organic growers in the Hudson Valley. Under the direction of sisters Amy and Gail Hepworth, this FreshDirect Partner Farm serves as a leader and inspiration for responsible and sustainable agriculture. Hepworth Farms preserves and maintains approximately 550 acres of biodiverse and nutrient-dense soil in Milton, New York, just 1.5 hours north of New York City. During their peak growing months from May through late November, they provide a full assortment of vegetables including tomatoes, beans, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cucumber, eggplant, peppers, zucchini, lettuces, greens, roots, and squashes. Hepworth Farms also offers popular spring and summer farm shares.

    EGGPLANT

    Storing Eggplant
    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.
