ping tung and the Capsicums
I've been trying without much success to grow eggplant here for the last two season. Yes, I do suspect James of feeding the plants nasty substances... but I think poor soil and short warm period have been the problem - rather like my attempts with melons... next year! Still I keep trying, and with capsicums -seeing as I got 1 plant through winter and got about 8 small red bell peppers/capsicums off it. This year I tried Ping Tung eggplant - in theory with small fruits (which mature fast) and prolific to make up for it. I've also got over 30 Capsicums in pots (and some in the ground)determined to get more.
