Beautiful Eggplant Plant

I have enjoyed growing eggplant, mostly because the plant itself is beautiful; large soft leaves, tall and self-supported shape, purple flowers and the glossy fruits.
Because our winter has been so mild, I have lucked out with an extended season for my two eggplant bushes. We have eaten many of the fruits and while they are not anyone's favorite, I have made some dinners that were enjoyed (by my husband and I, not our young children).
Here are some detailed photos of the plants taken January 2017.

A Harvest, the one on the left was past the best time to pick, it was no longer glossy & purple.
