Product Description

This heirloom variety yields glossy, purple-black oval fruits weighing up to 2 pounds. Black Beauty is a good choice for southern growers and is even recommended by several southern state extension services including Florida, Kentucky and all eight growing regions of Texas! Fruits hold well and retain good color. Try them in Asian dishes, stir fries, baked or even grilled. Black Beauty does well in container gardens, and with its attractive fruits and purple blossoms, it's also pretty added to the edible landscape. 80 days to maturity.
