Question: What is an aubergine? It is in a recipe that says that the "stripey sort have fewer seeds." It also says that it is one of the vegetables brought to Spain by the Arabs.
Answer: Aubergine is French for eggplant. Burpee's 'Purple Bush' are white skinned with a purple blush - maybe that qualifies as a 'stripey sort'. Order online at: http://www.burpee.com or order toll-free (800) 888-1447.
