The Gretle eggplant has a narrow oblong shape with thin skin that is glossy white. It has a large harvest window and can be eaten from the baby to fully mature stage, ranging anywhere from 8-25 centimeters. Young Grettle eggplants have very few seeds and even the fully grown versions remain sweet and tender. Its delicate skin may be left on as it imparts no bitterness, but rather a pleasant chewy texture. When sauteed, grilled or roasted the interior white flesh becomes creamy, sweet and nutty.
The Grettle eggplant may be found year-round, with peak season in the summer and fall.
The Gretle eggplant is a newly developed member of the nightshade family or Solanaceae. It was bred by selectively removing various disadvantageous eggplant traits such as bitterness, large seed size and narrow harvest window. The Gretle eggplant is prized for its versatility and ease of preparation and the white counterpart to its purple cousin, the Hansel eggplant.
