What's an Italian dinner without eggplant? Eggplant comes in many varieties and we love this one the most. The standard purple eggplant stands out with its size and color. It's oval and oblong with a green top. The Purple Globe Eggplant has a meatier texture than other varieties, and work well as a protein or bread substitute, as well as sliced within a larger dish like eggplant parmesan.
