Ping Tung Long

  • TS322
  • Solanum melongena.  A very productive Asian style eggplant that produces beautiful bright purple narrow fruits. These plants love the heat and are quite drought tolerant. Fruits have a mild flavor with no bitterness, and there's no need to peel the skin before cooking, as it is very tender. Not from our seed bank collection, but your purchase supports our conservation mission.

    • Organically grown.
    • Fruits 12-18" long
    • Approx. 0.25g/60 seeds per packet.
  • $3.95

Love these!

These grow very well for me in Las Cruces. All eggplants are slow to get going, but when the weather warms up they take off. It's May 12 and mine are blooming. The skins on Ping Tung are indeed tender and the flesh is mild and creamy. Highly recommended.

Although the seeds germinated

The seeds were started inside in a tray. They all germinated, but (despite following a slow transition to outdoors and providing protection) all of the plants died. I really wanted eggplant, so I tried direct sow and again they germinated but none of the plants survived.
