Grilled, eggplant parmesan, ratatouille: all summer long we lift glistening 1 to 3-pound fruits and swoop into the kitchen. Her satin-smooth skin is a deep, rich purple with a medium thickness ideal for grilling as well as baba ganoush.


At her peak delectability, Organic Black Beauty Eggplant becomes glossy. With healthy transplants, ample heat and abundant water, expect 8 to 12 gorgeous fruits per plant.
