Sale price Price $3.25 Regular price

Black Beauty Eggplant is a tender, tasty purplish-black fruit that is great in a variety of dishes.  This heirloom variety was introduced in 1902. Eggplants love warm weather and Black Beauty is no exception.  Protect from the cold as they could be damaged.  Plants produce 4-6 large fruit, more if kept harvested and watered well. For best quality, harvest before its glossy, dark skin begins gading to dull purple.

Black Beauty Eggplant is best started indoors and transplanted once the air and soil tempteratures warm.

Tender, tasty purplish-black fruits are great in a variety of dishes. Excellent breaded or fried. Introduced in 1902, this time-tested, open-pollinated heirloom is the standard for big eggplant. Eggplants love warm weather but are damaged by cold. Plants produce 4 to 6 large fruit, or more if kept harvested and well watered. Makes a good "boat" for stuffing. For best quality, harvest before its glossy, dark skin begins fading to dull purple. To determine ripeness, just remember that skin color and tone (glossy versus dull) is more important than size of the fruit. Easy to grow. Keeps well. Space transplants 24 to 36 inches apart in rows 3 to 4 feet apart. - See more at: http://bonnieplants.com/products/vegetables/eggplant/black-beauty-eggplant#sthash.8oA6nt8H.dpuf
