Product Description

The round aubergine is a similar variety to the more traditional long, black aubergine. Far meatier, with less seeds and an incomparable flavour, we regard it in higher esteem. Grown primarily in Sicily, its shape makes for easier peeling and grilling. A fantastic vegetable, aubergine is excellent when paired with tomatoes, cheese, garlic and middle eastern spices.

Italian aubergine a great purchase

This is the best and the creamiest aubergine that I have ever tasted. It is beautiful to eat. I roasted it with other vegetables and it was delicious.

Huge!

These are expensive, but they are very big. The skin is much more digestible than regular aubergines and they have a far greater flesh to skin ratio. I use them in ratatouille and curry and they always taste delicious. I have knocked off a star because the plastic bag did once cause the fruit to moulder, which was annoying. Now, I take it out and wrap it in kitchen paper before storing in the fridge.

Packaging needs improvement!

These aubergines are indeed tender and lovely, but the moisture from the plastic bags they are packaged in cause them to bruise and get rotten spots before they even arrive for delivery.

perfect

Perfect introduction to aubergines for my family.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

A revelation!

Delicate, sweet flesh. Really quite different to the aubergine I've become used to buying in supermarkets, and wholly superior. I will not be buying other aubergines from now on.

Supplier Response - Thank you for your kind review. We're glad we have converted you to the amazing round aubergine! We too love its meaty texture, creamy flavour and incredible versatility. Have you tried it with some middle eastern spices?
