Name This Plant: Eggplant

Name This Plant

We have a winner! Anonymous's husband has correctly named this plant
eggplant. Those of you in the US might be suprised to discover that eggplant comes in varieties other than the large purple ones we have at home. The small green ones seen above are in fact egg-sized. Cale also used an even smaller variety. These pea eggplants are, naturally, about the size of a pea.

So, that is where they might have got the nasty egg plant that they served at my 20 year tenure dinner for Clarian. All of us at our table poked at them, wondering what in the heck they were. My boss sent home a cell phone photo asking her husband what he thought they were, he made some comment about bulls and manly parts. We finally had to ask the waiter. They don't look near as cute cooked.
