Organic Black Beauty Eggplant
HEIRLOOM Hooray! A classic Italian bell, brilliantly adapted for short seasons! Grilled, eggplant parmesan, ratatouille: all summer long we lift glistening 1 to 3-pound fruits and swoop into the kitchen. Her satin-smooth skin is a deep, rich purple with a medium thickness ideal for grilling as well as baba ganoush. At her peak delectability, Organic Black Beauty Eggplant becomes glossy. With healthy transplants, ample heat and abundant water, expect 8 to 12 gorgeous fruits per plant.
At Fruition, we sow eggplant in soil blocks indoors 2 months before final frost, early April for us here in Zone 5, germinating them on heat mats with ease. Good light is essential: Younger, less stressed seedlings are healthier and more abundant than older, more stressed seedlings.
Eggplants are heavy feeders, so nourish them with nutrient-dense soil as well as fish and kelp emulsion for an abundant harvest.
