Eggplant, Pingtung Long

Solanum melongena

Pingtung Long is a Chinese plant named for a town in Taiwan. It has a lovely sweet flavor, is fantastic for slicing, and produces early. Vigorous and stress tolerant plants have a nice yield. Eggplants need hot temperatures for good yields, and do well in this area with raised beds and/or black plastic. Floating row covers can also help raise the temperatures a bit and more importantly keep bugs out.
