70 days. A wonderful eggplant from Ping Tung, Taiwan. Fruits are 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? Heat

What are the cons? Cold weather

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.

What are the pros? Continual yield, thin skin

What are the cons? Terrible germination

Review:

I really like this eggplant for a pickling variety and its skin that softens well with cooking. I have not had any bitter eggplant with this variety. However, I had a terrible start with germination with variety. I barely managed to get 5-6 plants from a packet after multiple weeks of waiting for germination. The plants were also horrifically slow growing relative to the other varieties (Bangladeshi Long, Aswad, and Black Beauty) that I grew this year. I started all four at the same time with 85-95% germination in the others. I don't know if it was the variety, a bad packet, or what, but this was the main struggle for this variety. That said, once they were large enough to set out (2-3 inches tall, multiple true leaves), they took off with growth. They have reached about 3-4' in height and have produced a slow, but continuous harvest since. Not a bad variety, but patience is definitely required, and accepting lower than average germination.

What are the pros? Plant size, bushy, taste

What are the cons? Color and size vary

Review:

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.

Review:

These plants produce a fair amount of delicious eggplant. I have had no issues gowing these. In fact I grow more than my family can eat. These are great if you pick them after they're seedy to make bread. I use a zucchini bread recipe and replace the zucchini in the recipe with these eggplants. Delicious! Love growing food that is easy and delicious!
