Eggplant Black Beauty - Salt Spring SeedsRegular price $4.00
Eggplant Black Beauty
Compact plants produce blocky, deep purple, almost black, glossy 5-6" fruits. Medium to thick skin. Beneficial to stake early in the season to support great yields of fruit to come.
Start indoors in a warm location 8-10 weeks before setting out. Sow seeds in a flat or pots of the prepared mix, 1/4 inch deep and 2 inches apart. Keep soil moist but not soggy and provide a strong light source as soon as seedlings have 203 sets of true leaves into individual pots or deep flats. Acclimate seedlings gradually to outdoor conditions when summery weather prevails, then set out 2-3 feet apart in rich, well-drained soil.
