Have a Plant: Fruits & Veggies for Better Health

Can I eat eggplant if the white flesh has brown spots?

Answer

Eggplant flesh will have tan to brown colored spots around the seeds.  If this is the color you are referring to, it is edible.  If the flesh is more brown than white, the eggplant may be spoiling and should be discarded.  Watch our eggplant storage and selection video with Your Produce Man, Michael Marks, and check out our Top 10 Ways to Enjoy Eggplant.
