A perennial or sub-shrub native to tropical Asiatic regions. In these regions eggplant is a staple vegetable in native cuisine. These members of the potato family have large oblong leaves of blue-green and bear lavender blue flowers throughout the year. These lavender blue flowers give way to oval fruits of extreme density. The beautiful characteristics are why this plant was brought to Europe during the Middle Ages and cultivated as an ornamental annual. Now the eggplant has become a seasonal vegetable crop in many southern European countries and throughout United States.
