70 days. A wonderful eggplant from Ping Tung, Taiwan. Fruit is purple and up to 18” long and 2” in diameter. This variety is so sweet and tender, superbly delicious! One of the best Chinese eggplants on the market.

What are the pros? Fast, super prolific, & sweet

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

The ONLY downside is that it might be too sweet for some savory dishes. I have grown about a dozen different long eggplant varieties over the years. This is hands down the best yet. It withstood our wet, cold spring (I would have them covered with a clear tub if it was raining and brought them in every night) Between this one, Aswad, and the Syrian Stuffing varieties, this one stood up to regional conditions the best and yielded the soonest, despite the fact that summer never quite came to fruition this year, in terms of heat. My Thai chilies aren't even mature. I've been keeping this variety from seed for 4 years. It is fairly well adapted and still nothing but green peppers. Anyways, these were 2nd only to my tomatillos in terms of summer vegetable productivity. They have a beautiful swept appearance tinged with lots of purple. Yes they have some thorns, but EVERY heirloom eggplant, that I have ever grown, does. They got to be a bit over 3ft tall by 2.5ft wide. Heavy yielder!!!

Review:

This is my third time planting Ping Tung eggplant. I enjoy growing them, my favorite vegetable/fruit to grow. It takes a while to get the seeds to germinate I start them indoors under a heated grow light . Germinated in about 2-3 weeks. Once in the ground they grow really fast, and ready to harvest in no time. They like growing in really hot weather, full sun. My favorite way to eat them is to roll them in flour (non Gmo flour) and lightly fry them in oil. Doesn't long to cook. I eat them everyday as they are producing. I can't say enough about these quick growing delicious gems.

Review:

Our favorite eggplant for growing and eating. Two 5' tall plants on a south-facing wall are producing for their second year. More than enough eggplants for our family. Pruning is needed to keep them from blocking the walkway as they get heavy with eggplants.

Review:

Thisis a wonderful eggplant. I will grow this again.. It grew to be 1 1/2 ft high and around. It is still producing in October the fourth month. It's flavor is slightly mild compared to large eggplant. It meat is slightly drier than a large eggplant. The skin is tender. I have make low-carb eggplant parmesan, I have put it in salads, put it in soup, and grilled it on the bbq with olive oil and salt and pepper. Unlike large eggplan,t the skin is very tender to eat, and it isn't necessary to pull moisture out of it with salt to fry. Realitive that were dubious became converts to the flavor and texture. One plant fed the 2 of us well and provided for company. My wife fell in love with the plant's all purple beauty.. She adopted an extra starter plant and placed it in a small pot. It is stll producing eggplant 10/25/2018

Review:

This eggplant has pearly white flesh, unlike most purple eggplants. It is somewhat more tender, and has a good mild flavor. It is somewhat easier to grow than other eggplant varieties. I had one survive winter and grow a second season. It reached three feet tall and about five feet wide. It produced many dozens of eggplants, a very prolific producer. I did not have any trouble at all germinating the seeds. The plant tolerates hot summers well, but does not like cold weather. The weather really does need to be warm before you set it outside, or it will just sit there and not do anything. It needs a long warm growing season to really reach its potential. It will tolerate average soil, but will not grow well in poor soil.
