80 days. Collected by the Gettles in central Thailand, where the natives refer to many colors of these small eggplant as “frog eggs.” Tiny fruits are the size and form of a cherry tomato, lavender splashed with cream. Very robust flavor, and super high yielding!

What are the pros? Pretty, perfect for roasting

What are the cons? Seedy, less robust

Review:

I'm probably a little biased; I grow Ping Tung every year, and it germinates quickly, leafs out enthusiastically, and performs amazingly in my climate. Frog egg was much slower to start for me, and more delicate. I sprouted three and only had one survive to fruit. However, it did fruit relatively early, and its delicate little lavender "eggs" are lovely to see. It will yellow if it gets too much sun, but that doesn't harm the flavor. Its small, round shape is perfect for roasting with peppers and tomatoes. Mine were quite seedy, but this might in part be due to my uncertainty about when they were ready to pick - they are such elfin little things that I wasn't sure they were done growing. :) The seeds were small and tender enough that they didn't bother me - just an interesting texture.

What are the pros? It started very easily.

Review:

I was so excited for this eggplant. I think I'm just in the wrong climate or my garden doesn't get enough sunlight? I transplanted in May and it's now mid-August. The plant has 4 leaves and is 2 inches tall. I'd love to hear if any other Pacific Northwest folks had any luck.

What are the pros? Small cute drought tolerant

What are the cons? Not much fruit

Review:

I forget If I reviewed this variety.The plants grew fairly well, survived flooding, no disease, and almost zero bugs, but also they haven't really produced anything. Fruit has lavender streaks but is much more cream color than picture. This variety went most of the season with few flowers and essentially zero fruit. They were planted in March-ish / spring, have drip tape, full sun, and moderately fertile soil. I have the little sailors and Japanese Pickling planted in the adjacent garden roughly 15ft from these, and those variety are producing well in virgin soil, even in the 100*F Texas heat. A whole lot more so now that I reinstalled one of my old misting/fogging systems on the garden. As for the Frog eggs, I've collected three fruits from about five plants, very disappointing, there are about four more fruits still growing and plenty of flowers now so maybe its going to pick up. Next year, I will experiment and see if production is related to soil fertility but only in limited #.

Review:

My seeds germinated quickly and I put the plants into the ground the first week of April. The middle of June the plants were covered with tiny purple flowers and lots of fruit. I wouldn't say they matured early but definitely right on time. I planted in rich compost with fertilizer and fed twice a month. This year we had a ton of rain in the spring and then a couple of weeks a very dry weather when June arrived, and the plants held up remarkably well throughout the crazy weather. They are hardy little plants. This is my first time growing eggplants and I would recommend these seeds. They are easy and fun to grow and share with friends. They are great raw in salsa or ceviche or salad. I will be planting more again.

What are the pros? pretty

What are the cons? Did not sprout

Review:

I tried every way I could think of but none of the seeds sprouted, all the other varieties that I started at the same time as these are growing well now but these just refused to do anything, maybe I just got bad seeds.
