This wonderful heirloom eggplant originates in Taiwan.
Ping Tung produces loads...and I mean loads of eggplants! Look at the picture and you can see all the eggplants hanging off that bush. That doesn't show the whole plant either! That is why it is a good idea to stake Ping Tung. It is not uncommon to have 15-20 eggplant fruits per bush! Iridescent purple fruits are 18" long and 1-2" wide.
Ping Tung Eggplant is high yielding and extremely disease resistant. Not to mention the flavor. This is one of our absolute favorite eggplants.
