Chinese eggplants are recognizable by their long, thin shape and unique violet coloring (though there are also white and variegated varieties). Chinese eggplant can grow up to eighteen inches in length and two inches in diameter. They are known to have the sweetest, mildest flavor of all eggplant varieties. Their flesh is cotton white, semi-firm and nearly seedless.
Chinese eggplant is available year-round.
