Black Beauty Eggplant
Eggplant parmesan, ratatouille, baba ghanoush, or simply grilled as a “burger,” you’ll love creating your favorite dishes with Black Beauty eggplant. The gorgeous, delicious, purple-black fruit not only stars in many fabulous recipes, it’s so easy to grow at home for the freshest flavor. Plants produce pretty, prolific harvests in warm weather—keep them well-watered and harvest often. Pick the fruit before the glossy, dark skin begins to fade. (The color and glossiness of the eggplant determine the best time to harvest, rather than the fruit’s size.) Grows beautifully in garden beds or containers. Add a cage to your eggplant to help support stems when heavy with fruit. Place in full sun, and feed regularly. Matures in 80 days.
Pretty, productive, and delicious—Ichiban-type Japanese eggplant meets all of your garden goals! The slim, 10-inch-long, deep purple fruit tastes sweet and mild, making it a perfect choice for grilling and roasting. Chefs love creating culinary treats with this beauty, so imagine how scrumptious your meals will taste when you harvest this lovely homegrown, thin-skinned eggplant just hours before dinner. A hybrid variety, it prefers warm weather but grows well in cooler climates, too, with harvests lasting into fall. Grows beautifully in garden beds or containers. Add a cage to your eggplant to help support stems when heavy with fruit. Place in full sun, and feed regularly. Matures in 50 to 60 days.
Patio Baby Mini Eggplant
Get ready to harvest a bumper crop of tiny eggplants! The glossy, purple-black eggplants are never bitter, even if you leave them on plants for a few days once they ripen. Fruits mature in just 45 days, and once you start picking, you won’t stop until fall frost. This is a 2014 All-America Selections Award Winner, developed for the shorter growing seasons of the Midwest and Northeast, though it grows well in a wide variety of climates. To grow in containers, plant one per 18-inch pot.
