Black Beauty is a very popular variety with reliable
production, good texture and a rich flavour.
This vegetable grows on small bushes to 1.5 m tall
with large, coarse, hairy, grey -green leaves. The
star-shaped flowers are an attractive mauve colour
The plants produce approx. 8 fruit per bush. The
fruit are large, egg shaped with a deep, dark purple
almost black colour. Being a native of Africa and
Southern Asia, this plant requires a long, warm
growing season. In tropical/subtropical areas sow
seed from Sep to Mar. In mild temperate climates
sow from Sep to Dec, and in cold districts, sow only
from Oct to Dec. Plants can take from 14 to16 weeks
to bear the eggplant fruit. It is best to start seedlings
in a punnet or seedling tray and plant out into the
garden when seedlings are around 15 cm and the
soil is warm around 25 C.. Plant the seeds shallowly,

0.5-1.0 mm deep. Give plants plenty of space, about a

square metre each. They may require additional staking.
