I went to small town farmer's market and picked up my very first white eggplant. Turns out that the reason they are called eggplant is because they came native from India, and all eggplant was white then. Their skins are tougher than the purple, but their meat is more tender than the purple. They are not recommended for eggplant parmesan, or frying. They are smaller than the purple. Now I wish I'd gotten two. I saw several recipes that recommend stir frying them.
