Black Beauty

Solanum melongena


A pear-shaped aubergine with very deep purple-skinned fruits. Popular with home growers, has good flavor and harvests early. This makes Black Beauty a good choice for all gardeners and especially those with shorter summers. Could mean all of us! Improve yields with hand pollination. Likes a rich, fertile soil in full sun.
