Baywater Farms Eggplant
Baywater Farms grows our eggplant in gorgeous artisanal shades including white, traditional deep purple, and graffiti. Eggplant is typically available throughout the summer and early fall. Graffiti eggplant is known for its small teardrop shape and graffiti-like purple and white color. All of our eggplant colors are ideal for cooking and become melty, rich, and fruity when carefully prepared.
Our eggplant is grown carefully using sustainable methods at our local family produce farm. We are committed to sowing seeds by hand, carefully cultivating our plants, and working our hardest to get a delicious product on the table at your restaurant. This delicious summer treat is pesticide free, so customers will feel good about sharing its unique flavor with their families.
What We Offer
Our sustainably grown eggplant is available in bushel and half bushel boxes. Each eggplant is carefully harvested at the peak of flavor so that they have a mellow and mild flavor, instead of a sharp and bitter taste.
Take A Bite
Graffiti eggplant is particularly delicious to prepare since it is smaller in size and easy to cook. The best ways to cook all eggplant varieties are quick and hot options like grilling, sautéing, and pan frying. Just like other colors of eggplant, graffiti eggplant can be halved, hollowed, stuffed, and baked. Eggplant fits perfectly into Italian and Mediterranean cuisines
Perfectly ripened eggplant is truly an art, and critical when it comes to ensuring a stellar final product. A ripe eggplant will remain the same size, have a beautiful glossy skin, and display soft, well-formed seeds when sliced. If an eggplant doesn’t yet have seeds, it is under ripe. If an eggplant has hard and dark seeds, it is over ripe.
Store picked eggplant by rinsing them, patting them dry, and storing them in the refrigerator. Keep in mind that eggplant discolors rapidly once it is cut, so it’s important to work quickly. If you use a marinade with salt, lemon juice, or vinegar, you can help to prevent rapid discoloration.
