Aubergine is the French word for eggplant. The white-coloured variety of eggplant gave the vegetable its name due to its resemblance to an egg. However, most of us are familiar with the popular dark purple eggplant. The word is also a diminutive of auberge which comes from the Spanish word alberge meaning peach.
