Rosa Bianca Eggplant - A Beautiful White Rose
A beautiful, round Italian heirloom variety with stunning, plump, tear-drop- shaped designer fruits with rosy lavender skin and alabaster flesh. The meaty and firm yet tender flesh has a delicate mild flavor, creamy consistency with no bitterness.
Beautiful both in the garden and in the kitchen. Has almost disappeared from the market.
Eggplants were cultivated in India and China, where it was known since 500 BC. It migrated to Africa and Europe through Arabia and Persia. Eggplant gained popularity in southern Europe toward the end of the 17th century.
Best used fresh, just after harvesting. Rosa Bianca has few seeds, making it the perfect variety for grilling, baking or any other eggplant recipes. One of the simplest and most addictive ways to share and enjoy this beauty is slice fresh-picked fruit into 1/2 -3 /4" thick slices, lightly sprinkle both sides with fresh ground salt and pepper, and then drizzle with olive oil. Roast on a medium hot grill until slightly charred, then flip and repeat. Serve hot with spoons for dipping the hot eggplant and crackers.
Grow eggplant in the sunniest spot you can find and provide good drainage. Eggplants have a shallow root system. They need warm soil to thrive.
