Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
Home gardeners love "Black Beauty" eggplants since they produce dependably and more quickly than some others. This is the shiny, medium-sized deep purple one that's perfect for all eggplant recipes.

When and Where to Plant: Start seeds indoors or in a hotbed 8-10 weeks before night temperatures warm. For later crop start seeds outdoors in warm and sunny location after weather warms. Cultivate deeply and enrich with vegetable food and organic matter. Firm soil over seed.
Care: Keep soil moist, weed free and feed every 4-6 weeks.
Harvesting: Pick when glossy and dark purple. Skin should not spring back when pressed with thumb.
