Pea eggplants look like green peas clustered together like grapes with short stems. The pea eggplants are not widely available in the US. However, they are now found in some farmer's markets and, if you live in warm climate like southern California or Florida, you can grow these in your yard. The bush is quite large, taller than a man. We've also heard that they are available in South America.

The two primary ways they are eaten are fresh, in chili sauce and cooked in curry. Watch out though when they're cooked because they can explode in your mouth, like a little heat bomb, if you're not careful.
