Eggplants are tasty but they are also a really beautiful vegetable plant. We like the heirloom Black Beauty Eggplant because it gives us the big round circles we love to cook and grill with and is a consistent producer.

Eggplants are high in anthocyanins, a pigment with antioxidant properties that can protect against cellular damage.
