Lie Ke Yieh Chieh Tzu Eggplant

1 Review | Write a Review
Collected in China in the 1930s, this old heirloom variety is both sweet in flavor and very tender when young. The best harvest size is achieved when the fruits are 4 to 5 inches in diameter, about the size of a large softball. The compact 24-inch plants produce heavily from mid-summer to frost. Plant seedling 12 inches apart for best yields.

What are the pros? fairly good flavor

What are the cons? low yield so far


This eggplant has pretty good flavor but was very slow to produce. I have two plants and each had a fruit at 2.5" in diameter when one began splitting. I have fried them up in olive oil and they taste pretty good, but bitter in some spots. The plants look very healthy but I think they want a little more water than our fairly dry climate can supply. Overall an interesting experiment but not recommended if you want a large quantity of eggplant.
