This variety of aubergine (sometimes known as the eggplant due to its shape) doesn't seem to absorb the oil as much as other varieties, making it even more delicious! Its striking purple-black fruits have a lovely texture and whilst being popular for Mediterranean and Asian cooking are increasingly being used in the UK too. They make a simply yummy moussaka!

Black Beauty produces a heavy crop if grown under protection - but will perform reasonably in a sunny spot outside, sheltered from cold winds.
