Fresh Thai Eggplant
There are various kinds of eggplant ("makua") grown in Thailand. We are pleased to offer fresh Thai eggplant known as "makua pot" in Thai language. Grown in California, each eggplant is about the size of a golf ball, appearance as per photograph below. These are perhaps the most common eggplants found in Thai markets. It's eaten as a fresh vegetable with various kinds of namprik (any flavor). Each fruit has small brown seeds in the core, and those seeds are used to make namprik kapi. This type of Thai eggplant is also used in all kinds of Thai curry, as well as kaeng par -- simply cut into quarters and add to the dish. These are grown in California. You get 16 ounces, and has about 20 eggplants.
