Ping Tung Long Eggplant Seeds (67 days)

250 mg pkt ~55 eggplant seeds

This wonderful heirloom eggplant orginates in Taiwan. 

Ping Tung produces loads...and I mean loads of eggplants! 

Look at the picture and you can see all the eggplants hanging off that bush.  That doesn't show the whole plant either!  That is why it is a good idea to stake Ping Tung. 

It is not uncommon to have 15-20 eggplant fruits per bush!  Iridescent purple fruits are 18" long and 1-2" wide. 

Ping Tung Eggplant  is high  yielding and extremely disease resistant.  Not to mention the flavor.  This is one of our absolute favorite eggplants.

Planting Tips:

A tropical plant, likes warmer temperatures.  Will be slow to develop in cooler temperatures.  Soak seeds overnight to start in greenhouse 2 weeks before last frost.  Transplant out at about 8 weeks or when temperatures are consistently above 65 degrees.  Needs good, fertile soil and adequate moisture.

Seeding Rate:

35,000-40,000 plants/acre,

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
