Junior Editors Quiz on FOOD QUESTION: Where did the eggplant get It* namt? ANSWER: The earliest explorers of South America found a large purple vegetable growing on bushes In the tropical area* of the continent. Since it was shaped like an egg they called it an •ggplant. For a long time, the egglant was thought to be poisonous. It has only been in the past 100 years that it has grown popular as a food. It is particularly popular among peopla who ara dieting because it contains few calories. Eggplants now are grown in many warm lands. In some tarn* perate countries where the warm season is short they ara cultivated in greenhouses. It takes nearly four months for an eggplant crop to ripen.
