Gbogname Eggplant

An ancient vegetable from Togo, West Africa. The young, green leaves are cooked into delicious dishes, like you would cook collard greens. Easy and fun-to-grow plants take heat well and are quite attractive with their green and yellow bitter fruit. A great piece of African culinary history that is rare and hard to find!

What are the pros? Good for health purposes

What are the cons? None

Review:

This egg plant requires an acquired taste. For example, bitter melon is good for medicinal purposes and so is this egg plant. Most of us in America, have sweet tooth and cannot deal with bitter vegetables. I high recommend this egg plant for the very health conscious gardeners.

What are the pros? leaves

What are the cons? intense flavor

Review:

This is a bitter flavored eggplant. Frying it in oil didn't cook out the flavor. I don't have a use for the fruit, but I think the leaves are intriguing. They have a lot of tensile strength for a leaf. The leaf flavor is mild. When I cooked it in oil it got crisp like a leaf cracker and tasted like spinach.
