    Succulent and pendulous. It hangs low and promises luscious yumminess.

    It's good for you too!

    Eggplant is an excellent source of digestion-supportive dietary fiber and bone-building manganese. It is very good source of enzyme-catalyzing molybdenum and heart-healthy potassium. Eggplant is also a good source of bone-building vitamin K and magnesium as well as heart-healthy copper, vitamin C, vitamin B6, folate, and niacin. Eggplant also contains phytonutrients such as nasunin and chlorogenic acid. Eggplant also contains phytonutrients such as nasunin and chlorogenic acid.

    I like mashing it and mixing it with sauteed chopped onions and eggs scrambled altogether, serving it with chopped tomatoes in soy sauce on the side, and with steaming hot white rice.

    Gamr- Your English fails you- You describe the aubergine as succulent (which is valid) but then describe it as pendulous, a word which here means low-hanging. But then, you describe them as low-hanging again which is oxymoronic.

    I think he's quite poetic by saying it is A and B and B and A.
    The symmetry!

    "L'aubergine" is what one would call this plant while visiting Paris. "Eggplant" is what one calls this plant when in the U.S., and I suspect, most English speaking countries.

    In terms of the color, there was a point several decades ago when Parisian meter maids got new uniforms in this color. They loved the new color, until disgruntled parkers got their tickets and started to call the ladies themselves "les aubergines". It became a labor issue until they were issued new uniforms in a blander blue.

    I do remember when i was a kid and i was visiting my French side of the family in Paris , they would always mention to check for ' Aubergines " where car-parking your car in the street . They would hide and then ticket you if you were illegaly parked ...I guess in Paris or else in France , an Aubergine is a parking enforcement person .....
    Lets our French RJ's mate confirm that ....

    In and of themselves they are basically tasteless and rely on other ingredients for flavor. They are like sponges and absorb the juices and flavors of the other ingredients.

    Warning: Know how to pick one out and prepare or you will wind up with something bitter and nasty.

    My first reaction to eggplant when I was a small child was projectile vomit. Ruined dinner for everyone else. LOL! Something about the texture didn't sit well with me. Soft mushy things in my mouth was a turn off. I prefered firm. Now who says we aren't born gay?!

    But I do like them now.
