Black beauty eggplants not so black...

LadyGuise | Jul 25, 2011 09:02 AM

My black beauty eggplants look like they are nice and healthy and growing very well except for one small problem...they aren't black. They are kind of yellowish green and light purple. Do you think they are still worth continuing? I know there are different varieties that come in all different colors, but from what I am seeing, the black beauties are supposed to be only black. I bought the plants at Lowe's so maybe they just labeled the pots wrong...or maybe I did something wrong while I was growing them. I think next time I will start with seeds. Anyway...what are your thoughts about my "not so black" black beauties? TIA!
