Full flavored and glossy, the Black Beauty Eggplant has a reputation for going gangbusters in the garden with a little added support like a topdressing of compost or a diluted compost tea solution. Perfect for long-season gardens. 90 days to maturity.
Packets contain approximately 25-35 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Start indoors 8-12 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Transplant outside after the soil has warmed. Space plants 18-24 inches apart in raised beds or double rows 2-3 feet apart. Plants prefer full sun and fertile soil with lots of organic matter.
To harvest large fruits, remove most of the side shoots and select two or three fruits to develop on one plant. For smaller fruits, allow the plants to develop naturally. Harvest while fruit is young and shiny for best flavor. Cut fruits from the plants with one inch of stem attached.
