Vegetable, Eggplant, Pingtung Long Elongated - Solanum Melongena
Long eggplant named for Pingtung county in Taiwan. Great for cooks who prefer to work with uniform slices. Vigorous stress-tolerant plants start producing early for a decent overall yield. Its light purple color is especially attractive if harvested before full maturity. As it approaches it's full 11", its skin darkens but retains a pleasing sheen. Its sweetness will keep you coming back for more. Yes, this is truly a hybrid strain that has better quality and flavor than the more common open-pollinated strain.
