Eggplants belongs to the nightshade family Solanaceae, and is grown for its purple edible fruit. I took this photo today a year ago, in the big garden I had back then. In northern California, where I used to live, it’s time to harvest those delicious purple veggies now. I think they are among the most beautiful vegetables there is. There deep purple color is magnetic, and hypnotizing. When you’re walking through a vegetable garden, and there is eggplants somewhere there, your eyes can’t help but look at them.
Eggplants are loaded with vitamins, nutrients, and fiber. They benefit the heart, brain, skin, and bones. They can control and manage type 2 diabetes and improve digestion as well.
A happy eggplant photo for your beautiful Thursday!
