Eggplant, Satsuma Long

93% of 100

A super long, Japanese eggplant with minty green skin that has a pretty, matte look. The white flesh is tender but firm and has a superb, sweet and buttery eggplant flavor that is lacking in most eggplants. The impressively long fruit grows to 16 inches while remaining tasty and tender. This heirloom is divine in tempura, curries, pizza, soups, and even salads! The perfect variety for roasting, grilling, pickling, frying, or steaming. A healthy garden treat that is so easy to grow. Gardeners and chefs in the beautiful Kagoshima Prefecture, on Japan’s southern island of Kyushu, have long treasured this heirloom that was known in ancient times as Satsuma. The name of this eggplant implies that it was a local favorite of the region.
