BLACK EGG EGGPLANT (70 days)

2

Germ 5-14 days
The fruit resemble black bombs or teardrops because both the skin and the calyx are a deep black with a purplish tinge. This is the only eggplant we know of with a black calyx. Japanese in origin, Black Egg produces unusually tender fruit on vigorous 3’ plants. Sets fruit early (even in cool weather) and is best picked early. 30 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed.

Harvest- When fruit is shiny and smooth, before losing its luster.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil, water with compost tea every two weeks and use row cover to give the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Mulch and keep well watered.

Black Egg Eggplant

I was really looking forward to growing this eggplant. I planted it in the same medium and at the same time as all my other early starts and not a single one of the Black Egg seeds germinated, whereas everything else I planted germinated just fine.. By the time I gave up hope on them it was too late to replant. Luckily I had planted another variety as well. Very disappointing.

Black Eggplant

The Black Eggplant grew well and produced many small delicious eggplants, plenty to eat and plenty to freeze, even though we live in Oregon far as you can get from Maine. I start them indoors and plant in a raised bed.
