Nope, you don't have to. I actually prefer not to, because it adds color to the plate and it keeps texture. It will keep the plant in more edible pieces (if you skin it it's more likely to get mushy). If it's a really big plant be careful how you cook it because the skin can get very tough and stick in your throat.

Basically the same way you peel any vegetable. A vegetable peeler works pretty well, though can be hard to get started with. A sharp paring knife will work well also. Pop und…er the grill, allow to char slightly, allow to cool, peel, enjoy.
An eggplant is a fruit. It's categorized under the type of fruit, berry.
I bought an aubergine plant about one month ago it was about 50cm tall. Deep purple flowers blossomed. I went back to the shop and asked "do i need another plant for cro…ss pollination?"..........the ans....NO! i had bees going in and out of the flowers and now i have about 8 aubergines growing on this one plant and more on the way. However i have been told that if you prefer to keep the plant indoors then just use a small paint brush to cross polinate. One advise...watch out for the snail and slugs they love to munch on the leaves!!!

Yes, if you keep it in the fridge, it will last longer.
No. You may leave the skin on.

No, the peel is edible, but washing it is recommended. Also, the peel should be cooked before eating just to make it more palatable.
Scrub it all off, sand the surface and paint a primer first.
It's up to your taste. Usually it's not peeled, but if you don't like the peel, then it's OK to peel it.
Well you dont have to peel it. i prefer to have it peeled but you dont need to.
Eggplant, can be tricky. Not knowing the colour of your walls, window treatments, floor treatments or much else I am left with picking the neutrals. Grey on the side of silv…er lends eggplant an elegant look. Black is a safe as houses, and every room should have a bit of black in it. I've seen eggplant and gold, and although it is not to my personal taste, it does have appeal. I have also encountered it with a deep rich midnight blue, and the combination was outstanding. Then there are some risk taker ideas. Bright berry red can bring out the playful side. Apple green is quite trendy now, and if used judiciously will be wonderful. Turquoise has a lot of appeal and is easy to work with. If all you are looking for is an accent, my suggestion is be brave, it's a small investment and can have a big impact.
