Aubergines are one of the mainstay products for our business.
It is native to South-East Asia, but today is grown all over the world and our current growers send ours over from Holland.
There are many different varieties of aubergine; we stock the classic bulbous, glossy, deep purple variety but just next door, French Garden Ltd sell ivory aubergines, hence the American name, "Eggplant."
Did you know? Although it is used as a vegetable, an aubergine is actually a fruit, a berry to be precise, and a species of nightshade?
