Eggplant 'Black Beauty'

Eggplant (Heirloom)
From 1902, it remains a standard worldwide for large-fruited black eggplant.

Eggplants are heavy feeders. Fertilize with 2-3 tablespoons of ammonium nitrate per 10 feet of row after the first harvest and every 3-4 weeks after that. At harvest, fruit should be large, shiny and uniform in color. When the side of the fruit is pressed slightly with a thumbnail and an indentation remains, the fruit is ripe.

  • Height: 18-24"
  • Spacing: 16"
  • Days to Maturity: 74 Days
