Eggplant Asian type (each) - Lux SHOP

A long, slender, violet-coloured variety of eggplant. They have fewer seeds than the darker globe-shape ones most recipes refer to, making them milder and slightly sweeter in flavour. For this reason, they also don't require salting prior to cooking as many eggplant recipes suggest.

The flesh of Asian eggplant holds up well during cooking, and they have a thinner skin that may be left on, so they are great for stir-frys and curries.

You'll receive about 3-5 fruits per order.


Grown in Ngongotaha under OFNZ certification.
