The absolute best of the full sized White Eggplants in my opinion is Casper Eggplant. A French Heirloom, it's taste is a scrumptious variation. If you've ever read anything about these eggplants, you'll see them being described as tasting like mushrooms, and that is perhaps the best way to describe them. They actually do taste like Mushrooms - certainly don't taste like chicken.
They are a reliable, but slow producer of 5-6" long glossy white eggplants. They prefer a cooler climate in comparison to most other varieties. Extended periods of hot weather will sometimes stunt their growth and hamper fruit development. Under optimal conditions they can bear fruit right up to the first hard frost.
Post Harvest - They do not store very well and should be eaten within a day or two of harvest. Stored in the refrigerator their skin will sometimes oxidize and turn brown.
