A great variety for those who prefer a dependable, larger fruited and traditional purple eggplant. Black Beauty produces very attractive 1-3 pound fruit that keeps well and has excellent flavor. This variety has been a popular favorite for 100 years. Create dishes with an international flair with eggplant. For an Italian style dish dip sliced eggplant in flour and fry in olive oil, stir-frying with bean sprouts, peppers and tomatoes, and eggplant goes Oriental. Start harvesting when the eggplants are 4-5 inches long. The skin should be shiny; dull skin is a sign that the eggplant is overripe.

Tip: Use a sharp knife and cut the eggplant from the plant, leaving at least 1 inch of stem attached to the fruit.
