Details

Black Beauty is a good choice for northern growers desiring eggplants that conform to the beautiful deep-purple eggplant archetype. These do that--and they do it quickly, producing a good harvest of fat, dark fruit a little later than Apple Green. As with all eggplants, careful protection from flea beetles during early stages of growth is critical.
Number of Seeds 50 seeds
Spacing in Row 24 inches
Spacing Between Rows 30 to 36 inches
Planting Depth ¼ inch
Days to Germination 10 to 20 days
Days to Maturity 80 from transplant
Height at Maturity 18 to 24 inches
Width at Maturity 24 to 30 inches
Sow indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, then transplant 24" apart once danger of frost has passed and soil is warm--usually 2-3 weeks after last frost. Cover immediately with row cover, as flea beetles love to devour eggplant leaves. Eggplants want heat; choose your sunniest spot for them. Give them ample water, drip irrigation is best. Harvest when fruit have reached 4-6" in diameter and prepare like any Italian eggplant.
