Though we consider it to be a vegetable, eggplant is actually a fruit related to potatoes, tomatoes, and peppers. This Japanese eggplant has a more elongated shape, thinner skin, and fewer seeds than the common eggplant. In the 18th century, some yellow and white European varieties resembled hen and goose eggs, which is how the fruit got the name “eggplant.”
