Smooth

Produce cannot get much smoother than the glossy eggplant.  Often mistaken as a vegetable, it is indeed a fruit, a member of the nightshade family along with tomatoes and peppers.  Eggplants also come in green and white varieties but purple is most common in our grocery store.

It is advised to buy the smallest, freshest eggplant you can find because it will have the sweetest flavor and be more tender.  The flavor tends to become more bitter as the fruit grows in size.
