Ping Tung Long Eggplant is a popular variety of eggplant that is known for its long and slender shape and tender, mild flavor. Originally from Taiwan, this eggplant has become a favorite among chefs and home gardeners alike for its versatility in the kitchen and ease of growth.

These eggplants grow to be approximately 12-14 inches in length and have a deep purple color with a glossy skin. They have a thin skin that is easy to peel and a sweet and delicate flavor that is perfect for grilling, roasting, stir-frying, or using in traditional eggplant dishes like baba ghanoush or moussaka.

Ping Tung Long Eggplant is an easy-to-grow variety that is typically grown as an annual in most climates. They prefer warm and sunny conditions and should be planted in well-draining soil, but can also be grown in containers. Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 25 seeds.

Planting Instructions: This is a tropical plant and needs warm weather to thrive. A warm growing season of 100 days or more is optimal. They do best in fertile soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.8.

Start seeds indoors eight weeks prior to transplanting. Sow ¼ inch deep in sterile potting mix. Keep moist. Germination temperature is near 80ºF.

Harden off plants before transplanting outside but make sure they are above 60ºF. After the night temperatures are above 55ºF, transplant 12 to 18 inches apart in rows three feet apart.

Harvest the fruit when they are young as they get seedy with age.
