Black Beauty Eggplant

Up to 2-lb. Fruits


An heirloom variety, Black Beauty Eggplant bears lots of classically shaped, glossy, purple-black fruits that are delicious grilled, baked, in Asian dishes and stir-fries. The fruits weight up to 2 lbs. each. Black Beauty Eggplant grows well in many areas of the country—and is a top choice for the southeastern United States where it is recommended by many Extension Services, including ones in Florida, Kentucky and Texas. Its gorgeous fruits and purple blooms also make the plant ornamental, making it a good choice for the edible landscape, growing in the sunny flowerbed, or in patio containers and Grow Tubs™. Start eggplant seed indoors about 8-10 weeks before night temperatures are above 55 degrees F. 80 DAYS.
