In British English we call them 'aubergine'.

Yes, if 'aubergine' is not accepted, please report it, so that they can fix it.

In American English it sounds more natural to say, "Does Dimas like eggplant?" if talking about eating. (Does Dimas like (to eat) eggplant?) Otherwise it sounds like you're talking about the actual stem-and-leaves plant.

Agreed. Saying it as a plural actually sounds kind of off
