Im amazed at the varieties of eggplants found at a nearby veg market.
They carry regular american/globe, italian, sicilian, holland, japanese, chinese, indian/small, thai/green, white, spanish-- maybe more,thats all I can recall.

My fav is definitely the sicilian which as I just researched online, I think is also called rosa bianca.
The inside is pristine white, it has very few seeds, and a mild pleasant flavour which is not at all bitter. If you dont like eggplant, give this one a try!

I find it fascinating that there can be so many varieties of each single veg/fruit, more than I will ever see/taste in my lifetime. Even with distinctly different tastes!

Hi nishu...

even my husband and i used to hate brinjal as kids :) and now we like it.

I am not sure what to do about the webpage, unless i change it altogether, it is one of the choices from "blogger" itself.
