The Bride Eggplant is a beautiful eggplant on the vine with long white fruit that has a bit of purple blush / light streaks on rounded area of the eggplant. It's open pollinated and has a nice texture without being bitter. It can be eaten fresh if picked young. It will hold up to heat and humidity and continue to flower and set eggplants until freeze comes — a hardy variety that we've adapted to grow in a hydroponic or aeroponic growing system in the Southeast region. This means a stronger and healthier plant if you grow it in hydroponic, aeroponic, or aquaponic system like the Tower Garden FLEX or Farm Stand.
To cook with this eggplant, we peel the skin with a potato peeler and then slice Bride Eggplant up into bite size pieces and cook in a frying pan with chicken and then combine together to stretch our meat and add in some nutrients to a pasta dish or stir fry. Our kids even enjoyed eating it and didn't mind the texture! It tends takes on the flavor of the dish which we love. We will always grow this variety because it is a long-season producer and so tasty!
