I've found names like "Striped eggplant" or "Rosa Bianca".

In Spanish it's called "Berenjena listada". In Catalan it's similar: "Alberginia llistada".

It is not the same as "Rosa Bianca".

In English, it is called "Listada De Gandia".

Here is University of Florida's overview of common eggplant cultivars in Florida, and one can find "Listada De Gandia" among them (and also "Rosa Bianca" for that matter).

A couple of excerpts:


Listada De Gandia: Plants grow 24–30 inches tall and 12–18 inches in diameter. Plants bear 5- to 6-inch-long fruit that is a purple color and has irregular white stripes.


Rosa Bianca: Plants are similar to ‘Listada de Gandia’ with a creamy white color and pink-purple irregular stripes that radiate from the top


The cultivar has spanish origin and it is not unusual for such cultivars to keep the original name (as it is in original language).

Take a look at this link too.

BTW, a very nice eggplant!

  • Thanks a lot! And then how about the small round eggplants (2 inches or 5 centimeters in diameter) that have the same colors and stripes? For example this one. If it's another cultivar, then I can open a new question for it.

  • Not a problem, @Fructibus. For another cultivar, just open a new question, that is the practice on this site, so that the questions are not indefinitely expanded.
