Italian eggplant is available commercially year round.
Italian eggplant is the generic name given to hundreds of eggplant varieties that are classified within the most common known domesticated eggplant species, S. melongena.
Eggplant skin contains 'nasunin,' a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger that protects cell membranes from damage. Nasunin protects the lipids (fats) in brain cell membranes.
The eggplant's sponge-like texture qualities allow it to easily take on flavorings. All eggplants are amenable to a variety of cooking methods including sautéing, pan-frying, deep frying, baking, stir frying, and especially grilling. Whatever variety, choose eggplants with a firm, smooth, unblemished skin devoid of any soft spots. Japanese eggplant has a short post-vine shelf life, thus should be used within a few days of harvest.
Though the name Italian eggplant eludes to these eggplants being native to Italy, their heritage lies further east in India and China, where the first domestication of S. melongena occurred. Trade routes brought eggplants to the southern warm climates of Italy and Sicily. Italian farmers embraced eggplants and soon the eggplant would become a symbolic vegetable of the Italian food culture. As Italian cuisine is dominated by the seasons, eggplants are one of the most popular vegetables of the summer and fall tables throughout much of Italy.
