What are the pros? Plant size, bushy, taste
What are the cons? Color and size vary
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.
