Kamo eggplant

An heirloom variety native to the Kyoto region of Japan, the Kamo has a mellow earthy flavor and works wells prepared in any number of ways but is commonly served lightly breaded and fried. It’s such an important varietal in Japan that the original Iron Chef series once featured it in a ‘Battle Kamo Eggplant’ episode.
