I have had great success with the Black Beauty seeds. They have produced the best eggplants imaginable! This was my second year trying to grow eggplants. Last year a rabbit ate all of them before they were ripe enough to pick. This year, I grew them in containers. I placed the containers on a table out of the reach of rabbits ( I found out that rabbits do not like to jump). I hope to have an even bigger harvest in the future! Thanks Sustainable Seed Company!
