Eggplants are a part of the Solanaceae or nightshade family. Through genetic mapping it has been determined that all eggplant species have shared ancestry with tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers. Although grown and treated as a vegetable, eggplants are actually a perennial fruit as it bears seeds within its body. Thus it is botanically classified as a berry.
