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

What are the pros? Plants dripping with fruit

What are the cons? couldn't eat them all

Review:

Planted 2 of these Lavender Frog Egg eggplants and had so many fruits, they looked like Christmas trees with ornaments. Amazing luminous color, look dyed, and sized from gum ball to apricot. Don't wait for the first fruits to ripen (when the purple gets more intense) pick the first few while still gum ball size; the plant gets the hint and starts pumping out the fruit. These are very seedy, especially as they age, but that just makes them more fun and crunchy; flavor is still mild and excellent. 2018 was very wet (38% above normal) and hot; will be interesting to see if this variety does as well in a "normal" year. Bet it would be lovely in front of house pots!

What are the pros? Cute

What are the cons? Flavor and tough skins

Review:

The plants were tough and grew great, although they did get some kind of disease at the end, but survived it all and kept producing these small, useless eggplants... haha! I tried cooking them different ways, but the skins were tough and difficult to enjoy. Not really worth growing it again as I just let these guys sit on the plants instead of cooking them. Enjoyed other eggplant varieties instead. Fun to look at though.

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.

What are the cons? 3 mo in garden and 2" tall

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.
