One of the best Chinese eggplants on the market! Fruits are purple and up to 18 inches long; 2 inches in diameter. This heirloom variety from Ping Tung, Taiwan is so sweet and tender, superbly delicious! (70 days)
Start seed indoors 8 to 12 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Surface sow and keep moist until sprouts appear, which can take up to 3 weeks. Transplant into the garden when weather has settled and soil is warm. Provide rich, well composted soil and ample moisture. Space plants 18-inches apart.
Note: Days to maturity are based on transplants, and are approximate. Most species of eggplant are from India or Africa, which indicates these plants prefer heat.
