Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Start eggplant seeds indoors in a warm, sunny location 8-10 weeks before planting outdoors. Wait 3 weeks after the last frost to transplant outside. Or, in warmer climates, sow directly in the garden. Successfully growing eggplant requires full sun and rich, fertile, well-draining soil.

Planting Depth: 0.25-0.5"

Seed Spacing: Sow Organic Black Beauty Eggplant seeds roughly 3' apart in rows, keeping rows approximately 18" apart.

Nutrient Care Instructions: Apply SUPERthrive once per week. Soak in solution of 1/4 tsp per gal for 15 min. or longer depending on size and type.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

You can tell when an eggplant is ripe by its glossy purple look. Harvest eggplant fruits while they are still shiny and about the size of your fist. Cut from the stem with a knife.

At Ferry Morse, we are proud of our non-GMO & guaranteed fresh seeds.
