Why Do You Think They Call It Eggplant?



This is just to say that the intended post for today got away from me and posted before midnight and without any words. This was a mistake -- I've gone back and added the words.

This is very good. I have always wondered why they are called egg plants. I have never seen a white eggplant before, Vicki.

Love your photo of the 'eggplant'. I presume that eggplant gained it's name from the small white ones that are the shape and size of eggs?

Cool photo Vicki. I hope you're going to tell us why an eggplant is called an eggplant.

I hope you're enjoying this cool weather that we woke up to this morning.

This is the first year I've grown the white eggplants. It seems to me that the name must have come from the resemblance. I haven't actually checked.

That's a cute little eggplant. I think that the big purple ones are laid by the Purple People Eater.

i.c. so you think it is the shape... sure is not the taste. Please share your recipes for this amazing delicacy. I have only two recipes, so tired of them.

cheers,
Joanny
