Learn More About The Eggplant Drawing

Have you ever eaten eggplant? You can learn how to draw an eggplant while learning about this interesting fruit.

Wait, eggplant is a fruit? Like the tomato, the eggplant is botanically a fruit - it is the part of the plant that carries the seeds.

But we often refer to it as a vegetable because it is used in savory dishes rather than sweets. In fact, tomatoes and eggplants are both members of the nightshade family of plants.

The eggplant is native to Asia, but it is now grown around the world. It also goes by the names aubergine and Guinea squash.

In Italian cuisine, it is often used in the dish eggplant parmigiana. In the Middle East, it is roasted and made into a hummus-like dip called baba ghanoush.

Today, the eggplant is also used as an emoji. In fact, along with the peach emoji, it is one of the most commonly used emojis on many of the major social media networks.
