Much of the vegetations and fruits are foreigners those who came at the times of colonization and invasions from the Portuguese, Dutch and the Britishers..

Brinjal, also termed as egg plant fruit. A native fruit of India.
In Kerala the vegetable fruit is termed as 'Vazhuthana'

A much used veggie in our diet.. An edible and must have content of diets in India..A plant which grows in tropical and subtropical climates.Studies found out that the fruits are much effective to treat blood cholesterol...Some studies shows no effects too..Another funny fact is smokers can eat this, as a substitute to cigarettes..But you have to eat 9 kilos of brinjal to get the nicotine content from a single cigarette..No food can make the effect of direct smoking or passive smoking..
