Default Eggplant?

I am going to grill my first eggplant tonight. Do I need to peel it or can I eat the skin? I fell silly asking but I really don't know.

I grill it with the skin on, but then I don't eat the skin. Not that you asked, but today I put a 1/2" thick tomato slice on each eggplant slice when they had about 3 minutes left to go on the grill. It was heavenly!

I also grill them skin on, but then don't eat the skin. And yum on the addition of tomato!

Is it an italian/european style eggplant (large, pear-shaped and blackish purple) or an asian style eggplant (long and slender, or the size and shape of a goose egg or large hen's egg and striped or solid shades of white, pink, purple, and/or green)?

The skin on the asian style eggplants is much softer than the european style, and I do eat the skin on asian eggplant. I like the taste better too. The long, thin are my favorite (any color), the little egg shaped ones are good too, but they have a lot more seeds so I'm not as fond of the texture (though I prefer both of the asian style shapes to the larger pear shaped european style, though I've been told they're just as good as the asian style if they're picked small - often here the grocery stores carry monsters, the size of a small butternut squash).

If it is very fresh I leave the skin on. If I have had it in my fridge a few days (or bought it from a major grocery) I peel it.
