Black Beauty (Solanum melongena) is the open-pollinated workhorse eggplant. Once established, these plants are incredibly hardy –thriving in 105˚+ temps in Summer, and withstanding multiple light frosts in Autumn – producing well into December in our fields! Huge fruits up to 3 pounds hang proudly from sturdy, spineless 2-3′ tall plants. We selected for vigorous growth, early production, and uniform fruit shape. Glossy, deep purple-black fruits have a rich flavor.
