A lot of people can be confused about aubergine and eggplant because these are not commonly used words. The word “eggplant” is mostly used in American English, eggplants are available in different parts of the world, but they are not named as eggplants. Basically, eggplant and aubergine are the same things.

Aubergine means a purple, brownish color fruit. Aubergine is commonly used in British English; it is widely used for cooking. People in London and Europe are familiar with aubergine. The most famous recipe of aubergine is a popular Italian food called Melanzane alla parmigiana. Eggplant is a word used mostly in the United States; it is dark purple fruit, the main reason why it is called eggplant is that its shape looks like that of an egg.

There are a lot of people who may become confused with aubergine because they do not necessarily know what this is. Aubergine is the term that is used by Europeans whenever they are referring to eggplant. There is no difference between the two except for where they are commonly used. If you would go to Europe and you would try to look for an eggplant, they may not immediately know what you are searching for.

The same way that if you would go to the United States and you would try to look for an Aubergine, they may not necessarily understand what you are searching for. Aussies will also call this an eggplant.
