Where can I find really ( really!) seedless (male) eggplant

JiyoHappy | Jan 16, 2008 08:36 PM

Has anyone come across any vendor @ any farmer's market selling truly seedless eggplant? I'd love to cook some "baingan bharta" but the seeds in regular eggplant do not agree with me. This kind of eggplant is very common in India, it is only available from Oct-Feb, is very dark purple and the exterior kind of looks like an italian eggplant. But it is seedless inside . The flesh is a very light tint of green. There might be a few remnants of seeds but these seeds are so soft that they can be crushed between 2 fingers to a pulp. These seeds melt and disappear when the eggplant is roasted. I have tried all supermarket chains, flea markets and farmers markets in south and east bay. I hope some farmer/vendor reads this!!!
