The Instacart guide to Chinese eggplant


About Chinese eggplant

As its name implies, this fruit comes from Asia and is widely grown in China. Variations of Chinese eggplant also grow in Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, and Vietnam, among other countries. You can get Chinese eggplant throughout the year, although it might not be available in some locations because it's considered a specialty produce item. If you can't find it at your regular grocery store, use the Instacart app to check local shops specializing in ethnic foods! You might also be able to find it at your local farmer's market.

While Chinese eggplant is technically a fruit, most people tend to think of it and use it more like a vegetable. This eggplant variety has very few seeds and a mild yet sweet flavor. Its violet to dark purple skin color is appealing and makes it stand out on the shelves in your local grocer's produce department. Inside, the flesh is white and firm. The fruit can grow to be around 8 inches long and about 2 inches in diameter. While it can have a crook, it's more often straight.

The Chinese eggplant's skin is thin, making it easy to slice and add to various dishes. Plus, it cooks quickly and holds its shape when preparing, making it a great addition to a stir-fry. It's often used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat toothaches, sores, fevers, and intestinal disorders. When using Chinese eggplant for medicinal uses, people incorporate the roots and leaves of the plant along with the fruit.

Add Chinese eggplant to your cart via the Instacart app, and an Instacart shopper will deliver it to you the same day. You might even get it brought to your door in as little as 2 hours on those busy days when you don't have time to stop at the store yourself!
