FAQs about Chinese eggplant

While Chinese eggplant is a form of eggplant, it does differ slightly from the standard eggplant most people are used to seeing in the produce department. Aside from being longer and thinner than a traditional eggplant, Chinese eggplant lacks the bitterness of most eggplant varieties, as it has very few seeds. Another difference is you don't peel Chinese eggplant. Because its skin is thin and delicate, you can cook and eat it with the skin intact. This is one of the reasons Chinese eggplant is so easy to prepare.

As with many fruits, Chinese eggplants have a variety of health benefits and are great sources of vitamins and minerals. The fruit's purple skin means it's high in antioxidants, which help fight free radicals in your body and can reduce your risk of getting cancer. It also has vitamin B6 to maintain brain function and improve how well your immune system works. Chinese eggplant contains healthy levels of manganese, iron, and potassium, as well. Its high fiber content helps with digestion and can improve heart health by lowering cholesterol.
