EGGPLANT – Black Beauty

(100 seeds)

$3.95

(2 customer reviews)

Home-grown, fresh eggplant has the best flavour

It looks just like the variety you get in the shops, and guess what? It is! But this classic beauty with its shiny black fruits tastes way better because you can pick it fresh and eat it right away. It’s a heritage vegetable variety that simply can’t be improved on, and it remains the most popular eggplant variety to this day.
