Healthy, tasty and tremendously versatile, aubergine offers us different varieties with unique characteristics that we can take advantage of a lot.
The fruit is edible in its entirety once the peduncle that joins it to the plant has been removed, which is too hard and can even puncture to the touch. The meat is white or cream-colored, very fluffy, with small seeds concentrated inside, towards the lower part of the body, which are generally consumed without further problems. The skin contains an anthocyanin, nasunin, with antioxidant action.
