This beautiful South Indian eggplant was collected in the city of Madras in Tamil Nadu, India. Long goose-egg shaped fruit wear a strikingly beautiful purple with white stripes. Best when picked on the small side. The skin can get thick on larger fruit but the flavor is still rich and wonderful. Unique delicious flavor when used in curries and chutneys. Best cooked before the fruit turns yellow, which is when the seeds are mature.
