Ew, no - I cube them and cook with garlic, tomatoes and herbs, then parmesan and cracked pepper. Much nicer that way :D

I'm about to grow this heirloom variety. I think the colour attracted me the most. I'm looking forward to learning and trying different ways of cooking eggplant. I recently tried it pickled and it was delicious!

I think it is called Eggplant Listada di Gandia. It's a fine heirloom variety. I'm waiting for my to germinate.

Get hold of some Thai Long Green eggplant seeds, Eden seeds have them, they are a little hard to germinate but well worth the effort, they are the best eating eggplant I have tried , they bruise easily and dont keep particulary well so I suppose that is why you dont see them grown commercially but skin and all they are delicious, they look like a long pale cucumber,
