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.

SOWING THE SEED

Eggplants can be established indoors, 8 weeks prior to the last killing frost. Sow in peat pots, at a shallow depth of about 1/4” under. Transplant entire pots, or direct sow outdoors, when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Check below for additional information on spacing and growth habits.

GROWING CONDITIONS

Eggplants will thrive in an area of full sunlight and prefer temperatures of 75F or higher. The soil should remain moist through the seedling stage, but never saturated. Your sowing medium should also be well drained as well. Adding a light compost to areas that contain hard, compact soil will improve your drainage. Spray with a light mist setting or spray bottle, until sprouts appear.

GERMINATION & GROWTH

Eggplant seeds typically take anywhere between 14 to 21 days to sprout. The plants will grow to a mature height of roughly 18 to 24 inches tall, and can spread 16 to 18 inches wide. The fruits display a sheen, dark purple, outer skin and a creamy white textured flesh. Harvest in roughly 75 to 80 days after first sprouts appear.

When your plants produce large, 5 to 6 inch fruits, harvest before the skin fades to a dull purple. Enjoy fresh or store for up to a week. Keep harvested and well watered to promote growth and the production of new fruits.
