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.

Review:

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.

Review:

This eggplant is a very tasty eggplant that can be used in many different ways including breads and muffins. The eggplants are a nice size and the plants produce many, not what I would consider prolific but a nice amount. They produce until the weather gets cold. I had no isses with pests with this plant. My family enjoyed this variety all season long!

Review:

This is the first eggplant that I've ever grown. Each plant produced over and over again. Through out the summer and well into fall. The fruit was tender and delicious. Our friends are already asking if we will have them in the garden again.
