Greek Eggplant Seeds TSAKONIKI

Price for Package of 10 or 50 seeds.

Many people complain that eggplants are bitter, well guess what? The Greek variety Tsakoniki is not, it is actually mild, almost sweet. This eggplant is from the town of Leonidio in Peloponissos, it is long with white stripes and it has PDO status, which means that it must come from Leonidio to be called Tsakoniki.

When eggplant season comes around there are all sorts of traditional Greek recipes to choose from.

The eggplant is a decadent vegetable; when cooked it literally melts in your mouth and caramelizes giving it a sweet taste. Although Greeks have plenty of eggplant recipes, the Mediterranean in general is known for its love of eggplants and there is an abundance of  traditional recipes to choose from.

Nutritionally, eggplants are a fantastic vegetable to include in your diet, here’s why: Eggplants are a source of soluble fiber, this type of fiber slows down the emptying of your stomach making you feel full longer and that can help you eat less if your are trying to lose weight. But one of the most important functions is that this fiber may lower the levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol in your blood.

Eggplants also contain several substances that can protect from chronic disease. One of them is chlorogenic acid, don’t worry about pronouncing it correctly, all you need to know is that this substance is an antioxidant and it appears to control blood sugar levels. Anthocyanin is another a substance present in these vegetables, it is responsible for the purple color and it also has antioxidant properties, studies show that it may offer protection from cancer.
