Question: What is the difference between a male and a female eggplant, and is one preferred over the other?

Answer: Male eggplants have fewer seeds and are less likely to be bitter. To differentiate between male and female eggplants, inspect the flower end. The male has a small, round, smooth end; the female has an irregular, less smooth end.
