The "Long Purple" eggplant variety is an elongated, cylindrical shape that is typically dark purple in colour. The skin is smooth and glossy, and the flesh is creamy white with small, edible seeds. It is a popular eggplant variety that is often used in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines.

"Egg Fruit" is another name for eggplant, which can be confusing since it is not actually a fruit but a vegetable. The name comes from the shape of some eggplants, which resemble large eggs.
