Details

Ping Tung quickly became a favorite around here. The shape makes it easy to handle and use in the kitchen and it's flavor is exceptional. The plant does extremely well over all in the north. Ping Tung sets fruit earlier than most varieties, and keeps producing into the fall. Even though the fruits are smaller, the over all yield is higher. Harvest fruits when young, about 4" for a delicate treat, or let them grow full size to 12-15" long.

Sow indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, then transplant 24" apart once danger of frost has passed and soil is warm--usually 2-3 weeks after last frost. Cover immediately with row cover, as flea beetles love to devour eggplant leaves. Eggplants want heat; choose your sunniest spot for them. Give them ample water, drip irrigation is best. Harvest Ping Tung when fruit are between 6-12" long.
