PINGTUNG LONG EGGPLANT (66 days) (HEIRLOOM)

Asian Heirloom
An open-pollinated oriental eggplant variety, imported from Taiwan. Fruits are elongated and slender, averaging 10” long and 1 1/2” to 2” across with a lovely, lavender-purple colored skin and white interior flesh. Bred to be resistant to many diseases, as well as tolerant to wet and hot conditions. A good yielder with fruit weighing about 1/2 lb. each.

30 seeds

PLANTING:

Germ 5-14 days

Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed.

Harvest- When fruit is shiny and smooth, before losing its luster.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil, water with compost tea every two weeks and use row cover to give the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Mulch and keep well watered.

Difficult after transplant

These little plants germinated quickly and thrived while in the greenhouse. But after I transplanted into the garden, they quickly were attacked by bugs...neem oil didn't seem to help. Organic 10-10-10 didn't help. I grow organically, so my options are limited. They are very stunted and seem vulnerable. I wish I had gotten a hybrid with some disease resistance. I'll give them another week, and then I'll pull them if they don't perk up. The adjacent tomatoes *both hybrid and heirloom* are doing great, so I'll be rethinking using eggplant heirlooms.

Versatile and tasty eggplant!

The plants survived a horrific flea beetle attack just as the flowers started opening and after a few days of soapy water and tlc came back to produce many lovely small eggplant. These are free of the bitterness that some eggplant have. They are wonderful grilled.
