Caption: Chinese aubergines. View of several Chinese aubergines (Solanum sp.), also called Chinese eggplants, growing beneath the leaves of their plant. Chinese aubergines are thinner and more curved than the common aubergine. They are used in casseroles and stews for their distinctive colour and moist flesh. They contain the essential mineral potassium, and carotene, a substance the body can convert into vitamin A. Chinese aubergines belong to the family Solonaceae, a family which contains several toxic plants, including the deadly nightshade. The family also includes such common plants as tobacco and potato.
