Solanum melongena
Family: Solanaceae
Tropical Eggplant, Asian Eggplant
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersEdible

This oriental variety has bright red fruit that are very sweet and tasty, can be eated raw or cooked in asian recepies. Flowers are white, unlike regular eggplant with purple flowers. Eggplant got its name because the first varieties to be cultivated in North America were shaped like hen's eggs. They came in several colors and were grown as ornamentals, not for food. The plant that yields this eggplant vegetable is a frost-tender herbaceous perennial, but it is sometimes grown as an annual in cooler climates. Fruits of other varieties may be black, purple, green, white, striped, red or orange. Eggplants need adequate water during the development of the fruit. Easy to grow, requires little care. In warm climate or in a hreenhouse will yield fruit for a few years.
