All types and sizes
Our motto is: ‘More market in aubergine cultivation’. The aubergine market has potential. The popularity of the aubergine is low, but is growing steadily. More households buy aubergines and the consumption per household increases.
In the Netherlands, no more than 270 grams of aubergine are eaten per household per year. Italy, on the other hand, consumes 6 kg per head of the population. The Greeks eat 8 kg per year and the Turks 13 kg of aubergines per head of the population. The aubergine is the least high-calorie vegetable that exists since it contains no more than 18 kcal per 100 grams.
Our aubergines are sorted and packaged after the harvest on the same day so that they are transported as fresh as possible to our customers. The aubergines can be delivered in five different weight grades, we are also able to package them in different ways such as flow pack, single-layer packaging and various other types of packaging.
We cultivate both the standard type of aubergine, the purple one as everyone knows, and all kinds of other types such as the White, Graffiti, Japanese, Italian and Turkish. More information about our product and cultivation association Purple Pride can be found at www.purplepride.nl. All sales go through Purple Pride.
We call it the standard aubergine, but the Purple Pride standard aubergine is anything but standard.
The Graffiti aubergine owes its name to its strikingly striped appearance. In addition, it has nice, white flesh.
It stands out because of its round shape and beautiful colour scheme. But also in taste this one excels: very aromatic, mild and juicy.
The name says it all: you can recognise this aubergine by its beautiful, creamy white colour. This aubergine has a mild taste.
Its ‘roots’ are in Japan, where this aubergine is very popular. It is characterised by a deliciously sweet, aromatic taste.
The Konasu is the little brother of the Nasu. Konasu literally means ‘baby aubergine’ in Japanese.
Just like the Graffiti, you can recognise this aubergine by its strikingly beautiful striped appearance. Very popular with chefs due to its small size.
