Aubergine Black Beauty is a traditional variety from 1902, which today remains like an black aubergine standard almost all the world. It is a very popular plant for its rapid ripening and high productivity. Moreover, it is very durable and easy to grow. The seeds of this variety we offer are Organic.

It produces a lot of brilliant deep black color fruits, with pear-shaped. Aubergines are between 10 and 15 cm and can weigh 650 gr. They are very tasty and high quality, its flesh is very soft and the skin is thin. The plant grows to 120 cm.

The planting is in March or April after frost or in January if we choose to do inside, but always in a warm place because the seeds needs hot to germinate (20 to 25°C). We must sow 1 cm deep, covering with a few of soil, leaving a space between seeds of about 45 cm, so that the plant can developed. If you sow in pots you can plant two per pot, after, you have to transplant the smallest plant. Aubergine should be in a warm and sunny. We should water a lot especially in warmer and dry seasons. We must ensure that the pot is very big and is kept watered. Aubergine Black Beauty will need some support from the weight of its fruits.

The fruits ripen in about 78 days. Harvest when the eggplants have the right size, although we harvest when they are still bright. We cut the stem about 2 cm above the aubergine. Continuous harvesting favour the production of more fruits and relieve the weight plant. If you want to store the eggplant the best way is to freeze them.

The eggplant should always be cooked and never eat raw, because they have an alcanoide which is eliminated with cooking, but raw it can cause digestive problems. We can cook in many ways but the most widespread are grilled and baked. The size of the Black Beauty variety makes it perfect for filling with bechamel or meat. Au gratin or in tempura with other vegetables is delicious.

It is an excellent diuretic, antioxidant (for its high content of vitamin E and anthocyanin), detoxifying, lowers cholesterol and prevent heart disease by improving circulation. It also stimulates the functioning of bile and helps improve consequence of rheumatic pains. It's high in potassium, folate, fiber, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and iron.

We can plant eggplant with green beans, beans, peas, radishes, onions, garlic, spinach, cabbage, cauliflower, peppers, leeks, arugula and lettuce. It is not advisable to plant it with cucumbers.
