The eggplant (known as AUBERGINES
in Europe) with its elegant pear shape
and shiny, smooth, purple skin, is according to me
one of the most attractive vegetables.
In America it is almost more appreciated as table decoration than as a food.
Aubergines come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colors, which makes them an outstanding edible landscape plant.
A newer variety (called Japanese eggplant) is long and thin, resembling the zucchini.
The colors range from white to lavender to deep purplish-black (almost jet-black) as well as pale green, pale violet, yellow, and reddish. There are even some striped varieties.

Painted staple free sides.
(doesn't need framing.)
I framed it though in a warm walnut-golden frame.
It's a beautiful duo, the AUBERGINES and the GRAPES together!
