Single Packet of 100 Seeds
Grow a garden that's filled with the delicious, Black Beauty Eggplant, from freshly harvested Solanum melongena seeds. Black Beauty is an heirloom variety that's been in circulation for more than 100 years. These 5 to 6 inch long fruits will display a sheen, dark purple outer skin, with a creamy white inner flesh. Each fruit weighs about 2 pounds and offers a mild, squash like flavoring. Enjoy them baked and breaded, or consume them fresh. The plants themselves will reach a mature height of roughly 18 to 24 inches tall, and can spread about 18 inches wide. Black Beauty is a high yielding Eggplant that will produce about 5 to 6 fruits per adult plant.
Categorized as an annual vegetable, Black Beauty Eggplants can be established and harvested by the end of the Summer season. The plants will flourish in the heat of summer, producing leaves, flowers and fruits in a matter of 75 to 80 days. The plants then wither with the cooler temperatures of the Autumn season and light frost. Seeds can be collected from the Black Beauty Eggplant for regrowing the following season.
