Heirloom Black Beauty Eggplant Seeds Planting Instructions
For optimal results growing your Black Beauty Eggplant Seeds:
- Plant in sunny spots with warm, nutrient-rich soil.
- Initiate indoors by sowing seeds 1/4 inch deep in flats or cells, 6 weeks prior to the last expected frost. Maintain soil warmth of around 80°F or above.
- Once the warmth of the season returns and soil reaches approximately 60°F, relocate outdoors.
- Settle transplants in rows 30 to 36 inches apart, spacing each 18 to 24 inches apart.
Black Beauty Eggplant Harvesting Instructions
- The Black Beauty Eggplant typically matures in about 73 to 80 days, identifiable by their full gloss and vibrant color.
- Determine readiness for harvest by applying thumb pressure on the skin - if the fruit retains the indentation, it's ready to pick.
- Opt for garden shears to snip the stems from the plant, avoiding pulling.
