Egg Plants[1] (also parsed as Egg-Plants[2] or in lowercase[3]) are a species of flowers in the Yoshi platforming titles. They first appear in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

Egg Plants normally spit out normal Yoshi Eggs. They are very common and appear in almost every level. They spit out Yoshi Eggs one at a time, but if a Yoshi Ground Pounds near one, the plant will either shoot out several at once or start shooting them out more quickly. The Yoshi can also lick the eggs to catch them. Since the Yoshi can only carry six eggs each, the Egg Plant won't produce more eggs anymore until the Yoshi uses one of the Yoshi Eggs on something.

Also, some Egg Plants called Needlenose Plants will spit out Needlenoses, but as long as a Yoshi has six eggs, it can't spit any out. There are four Needlenose Plants in the Island Museum. They can be viewed in the botanical enemy exhibit.

An Egg Plant appears in volume 14 of Super Mario-kun, where it helps Mario, Yoshi, and Luigi by providing eggs in their fight against Burt the Bashful.
