What are the pros? Pest and disease resistance
What are the cons? Nothing
We've been growing eggplants for the very first time this year and I have to say we really like this variety. The Ping Tung eggplants are very tasty and the texture is extremely pleasant, somewhat creamy. They just melt in your mouth! We had never had Asian eggplants before and now we like them more than the Italian types that are more readily available here. Even my dad who doesn't like eggplants loved these!
They look great, too.
We sowed a dozen seeds in mid-March. One of the seeds sprouted in less than a week but the other seeds took between twenty to thirty days to germinate. Seven plants were put into the soil around May 20 and by July 15 we had already spotted that a few small eggplants were starting to grow. The plants have beautiful leaves and look very healthy despite our unstable summer weather. No pest or disease problems whatsoever. They are still producing lots of thin, purple eggplants.
