EGGPLANT FACTS: Eggplant, also called Aubergine, or Guinea Squash (Solanum melongena), tender perennial plant ofthe nightshade family (Solanaceae), closely related to the potato. Eggplant requires a warm climate and is grown extensively in eastern and southern Asia and in the United States. It is native to southern and eastern Asia, where it has been cultivated since remote antiquity for its fleshy fruit

For this purpose it is usually grown as an annual. It has an erect, bushy stem, sometimes armed with a few spines; large ovate, slightly lobed leaves; and pendant, violet, characteristically solitary flowers, approximately two inches across. The fruit is a large, egg-shaped berry, varying in colour from dark purple to red, yellowish, or white (the colour and shape of the white variety is the source of the common name); it is sometimes striped and has a glossy surface.
