Where Do Eggplants Grow
Eggplant (Solanum melongena) belongs to the nightshade species, and grows all over the world from production farms to home gardens. In the United Kingdom, the French name aubergine refers to eggplant, while South Asia and South Africa call eggplant, brinjal. Australians, New Zealanders and North Americans use the name eggplant. Eggplant still grows wild in India.
