Most commonly purple, the spongy, absorbent fruit is used in several cuisines. Typically used as a vegetable in cooking, it is a berry by botanical definition. It is related to the tomato, chili pepper, and potato. Like the tomato, its skin and seeds can be eaten, but, like the potato, it is usually eaten cooked.
