Eggplant, Graffiti

The Graffiti eggplant has the same shape as regular globe eggplant, but it is regarded as having a superior flavor. The flesh is juicier and it doesn’t absorb as much oil, making it an excellent candidate for stir-fries or rich baked dishes. It is especially suited to dishes paired with rich meats such as pork belly or beef roast. Thanks to its striking variagated, purple and white color scheme, the Graffiti eggplant can be used decoratively in all kinds of dishes. Greenhouse-grown graffiti eggplant is exceptionally consistent in shape and size, making preparation simple and menu planning easy.

Handling & Storage

Varieties

March to October (Netherlands)

Also Known As

  • Graffiti Aubergine

Eggplant was originally a tropical vegetable, so it does not do well in extreme cold. Store eggplant outside of the refrigerator, but in a cool place — ideally 50 degrees. Stored on the countertop, eggplant should keep for about 3 days. Store cut eggplant wrapped or in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Note cut graffiti eggplant will oxidize and turn lightly brown once cut.
