Our Feedback
Fantastic quality of trees, vines and plants. Very professional service. If only all sellers opperated at this level. Had one vine that got caught up in a late delivery but the staff were really helpful and replaced it immediately. I will recommend to friends and family.

This variety of aubergine (sometimes known as the egg plant due to it's shape), doesn't seem to absorb the oil as much as other varieties making it even more delicious! It's 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 lasagne.

Black Beauty produces a heavy crop if grown under protection - but a sunny spot outside, sheltered from cold winds, will similarly produce a very worthwhile crop.

  • Pot into small pots April - May.
  • For outdoor growing transplant outside after the risk of frost has passed into a sunny sheltered spot; plant out 36" (90 cm) apart in rows 36" (90 cm) apart and provide a sturdy support.
  • For greenhouse or polytunnel growing plant out into either larger pots, growbags
  • Provide a sturdy support.
  • Well suited to growing in polytunnels, though ensure good ventilation (without cold draughts); flowers rotting before fruit is a sure sign of bad ventilation.
  • Harvest August - October.
  • Average yield is around 4-5lbs (1.8 - 2.3 kg) per plant.
