Solanum melongena or eggplant better known as garden eggs in some regions of Africa is a vegetable grown in the subtropics and tropics. 

The name eggplant originates from the shape of the fruit. Eggplant has chemicals that can cause digestive upset if eaten raw, so is frequently cooked.  

Eggplant can be fried, grilled, stuffed, roasted, and cooked in soups and stews.
