Waitrose Introduces White Aubergines
UK retailer Waitrose is introducing white aubergines, or 'snowbergines', into its stores this week.
The vegetables are similar in shape to the more common purple variety, but are slightly smaller. They are also are creamier and milder in taste, and soak up less moisture when cooking.
Early varieties of aubergine were traditionally white-skinned.
“Aubergines are particularly popular during the summer months as they are great for grilling," said Jade Symonds, Waitrose's vegetable buyer.
"It's the perfect time to introduce a new speciality range of aubergines, which includes our 'snowbergine' as well as a striking purple and white striped variety.”
The aubergines, which are grown in Holland, will be available until the end of June, and retail at £1.35 each.
