What are the pros? Plant size, bushy, taste

What are the cons? Color and size vary

Review:

After cooking up too many eggplants for dinner and finding them inedible, I have branched out and tried some new varieties. Ping Tung is a big winner for the hot AZ summers! Even when picked orange (waaaay ripe) for seed saving, these eggplants are STILL NOT BITTER. This eggplant is the best. We like to marinate sliced in half in soy sauce, oil, and chili flakes. Then grill. Always delicious and laughs at the 110 degree days. I planted these 18" apart and these compact bushy plants could have been spaced at 1'. Not big plants but they produce like crazy and don't need staking. The color does vary, as they seem to be less purple (and more white with light purple) as summer goes on, but wild horses can't stop me from eating these things. Get yourself some ping tung and stop throwing out nice (but bitter) Black Beauty fruit and the like.

What are the pros? Color, Flavor, Easy To Grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

These plants produce a fair amount of delicious eggplant. I have had no issues gowing these. In fact I grow more than my family can eat. These are great if you pick them after they're seedy to make bread. I use a zucchini bread recipe and replace the zucchini in the recipe with these eggplants. Delicious! Love growing food that is easy and delicious!

What are the pros? size, texture

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

Granted eggplants like heat and I have plenty of that in Phoenix Arizona, but this variety was incredible. A little slower to germinate, but it has put out long elegant looking eggplants non stop in my containers. We are in Dec, it has been a rather warmer winter for us and this one still continues to produce! The texture cooks up buttery and sweet without the bitterness of some eggplant.

What are the pros? Keeps on Giving!

What are the cons? Eggplants are finicky

Review:

The review asked for a dislike, so my only complaint has to do with all eggplant. They're finicky, picky little princesses. That must be why some have fairytale-type names. They want to be pampered, coddled... You might as well be massaging the roots while you're keeping them warm during cold snaps. I cultivate between four and nine types of eggplant per year to get a wide array of colors and shapes. Ping Tung is, by far, the most prolific I've found. There are larger and heavier varieties, but those don't grow well in short or erratic seasons. I like Rosa Bianca for softball-size steaks, but I'll get between two to four fruit per plant before the first frost arrives. Ping Tung will give me ten to twenty. They're also the most likely to set fruit in temperatures over 100 degrees. Ping Tung are probably the least princesslike of all heirloom eggplants I've ever grown. They're like... princess lite. Or Eggplant, Warrior Princess.
