Aren’t those just white eggplant (a different variety?)
there are ripe, white eggplants. Way back in the 1700s, early European versions of eggplant were smaller and yellow or white. They looked a bit like goose or hen's eggs, which led to the name “eggplant." White eggplant, botanically known as part of Solanum melongena is scientifically considered a perennial fruit though agriculturally it is grown as an annual vegetable. All eggplants are part of the Solanaceae family along with potatoes, tomatoes and peppers.
Always wondered why they are called that.
“What came first? The chicken or the egg?”
“Naah, eggs comes from plants man...”
Sorry guys. Turns out I was wrong and there are actually just a white variety. Still, the name makes a lot of sense.
