70 days. A wonderful eggplant from Ping Tung, Taiwan. Fruits are purple and up to 18” long and 2” in diameter. This variety is so sweet and tender, superbly delicious! One of the best Chinese eggplants on the market.

Review:

I always come back to this variety every year. This year we moved from TN to MI and I was surprised to see that eggplant was easier to grow here. I moved my seedlings and planted them late. despite the stress they thrived. I also bought some hybrid long eggplant from the local nursery. While they grew fine, the flavor was bitter (and required salting) and the skins were tough. The Ping Tungs were perfect and were sweet enough to go straight into any dish without pre-salting first.

I got the seeds for the Ping Tung eggplant because of the cake recipe in the catalog! I harvested beautiful eggplants and baked that cake! It was absolutely delicious! It is a great and sweet eggplant!

Review:

I found this variety not very good to eat - not bitter exactly, but somewhat off-tasting compared to the standout Rosa Bianca. I wound up giving most of it away.

Review:

I have never been able to grow eggplant successfully, until now. These were wonderful little eggplant bushes. I grew three total plants and probably harvested about 10-12 eggplants per bush; primarily in August and September. For me the first one on each plant was bitter, but the successive ones were not. They were perfect for sauteing or stir frying. They were susceptible to colorado potato beetle larvae in its first growing stages, but really easy to see the buggers underneath the leaves. Not sure if it was the plant, or just the invasion in my area. The plant thrived after killing off the bugs. Would definitely recommend this heirloom type.
