These three typical vegetables from the nightshade family are an unmistakable part of summer cuisine and none of them originally come from Europe. The real homeland of tomatoes and peppers is South and Central America. The eggplant comes from Asia. They are all true sun worshipers in the garden and really need warm and sunny locations with a good supply of water and nutrients. They stop growing at temperatures below +12°C.
All three varieties probably came to Europe by ship at the time of the Spanish conquerors and started their personal conquest around the Mediterranean. So it is not surprising that they are an important part of Spanish as well as Italian, Greek, Turkish, North African cuisine and actually all national cuisines around the Mediterranean.
What is completely normal for the population of the Mediterranean zone tastes like vacation and summer for us Central and Northern Europeans.
