Eggplant - Black Beauty
Eggplant Variety: Black Beauty
The name says it all. Generous size, with shiny skin, perfect for melanzane parmigiana - the well known baked Italian dish. Plant in full sun and it will reward you with lots of food. For balcony gardens, plant in a pot 40cm in depth * diameter or larger.
For best results, germinate your seeds in trays filled with a good seedling mi. Keep them warm and moist and transplant them in rich organic soil when they are 5-6cm high. For direct sow: Plant in well prepared beds, rich in organic compost. Water regularly. Pick the fruits before the skin loses its gloss, which is a symptom or over-ripeness, to enjoy whole-heartedly.
