Non-GMO, Heirloom, Open Pollinated

Black Beauty Eggplant is a popular heirloom variety that produces glossy deep purple (or black) colored fruits. This heirloom is said to be over 100 years old. Each fruit grows to 4-5 inches long. The plant will spread, grows bush-like, and will give you 6-12 fruits in its growing season.

Ideal germination temperature is 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Best if sown indoors 8-12 weeks before your last frost, in a sunny location or under a grow light, and then transplanted outdoors when nighttime temperatures get above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If you live in an area with a long growing season, you can direct sow the seeds outside when the soil temperature is at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
