Organic Black-Beauty Eggplant Seeds

Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Black-Beauty Eggplant seeds have 70 days to maturity. Glossy purple-black, egg-shaped fruits are borne abundantly on spineless plants. This is the standard open-pollinated eggplant chosen by gardeners for generations. It can be baked, fried, pureed and stewed. It is like a sponge for other flavours. Italian origin.

Start eggplants indoors 8 weeks before your frost free date. Sow seeds .6 cm deep. Germination will occur in 5-10 days at  27-32 degrees Celsius. Move seedlings into larger containers when first true leaves appear and give them a rich mix with lots of compost or organic fertilizer. Keep plants warm and harden off before planting outdoors. Space plants 45-60 cm apart in the row and rows 75-90 cm apart. Row covers and black plastic mulch can boost production by providing additional warmth.
