A long, bulbous, bright purple eggplant, or aubergine in British English, shown with a leafy stem. Considered lucky in Japan to dream of an eggplant the first night of the New Year.
Widely used to represent a penis. Due to its phallic use, the hashtag #🍆 was once banned (2015) on Instagram’s search function.
Eggplant was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 under the name “Aubergine” and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
