Beautiful cream-colored fruit are about the size and shape of a large egg! Mild, bitter-free and sweet-tasting, this little cucumber set massive yields in our gardens. So fun to grow, and very unique-looking; great for children and all who like delicious cucumbers. We were sent this new favorite by Reinhard Kraft, a German seed collector, but this heirloom originated in Croatia.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, space saver

What are the cons? Not promised smooth skin

Review:

These cucumbers are great, in the sense that the plant grew healthy, has tons of flowers, and is already very productive here in Phoenix! However the seeds we got produced spiney fruit with a fairly bumpy skin - not the smooth, thin skin that other reviewers described. Not sure if it was a crossbred seed or our climate, but it looks like a pretty traditional cuke, just a bit smaller and white. I love that the plant is doing well with vertical growing, but might try another variety next year. But definitely productive!

Review:

These cucumbers are a wonderful addition to any garden. Unfortunately, I had a flash flood hit my garden and wipe out a lot of my plants but these little guys didn't seem to mind. They managed to hold on and then flourished in all that water. The vine grew small but the cucumbers were everywhere. I don't have very many plants and I always have cucumbers to snack on.

What are the pros? delicious! cool looking

What are the cons? not one thing

Review:

We tried these this year just based on the name - how could we pass them up? But I am so glad we did. I've been looking for a non-prickly, tasty, thin skinned cuke to grow and boy did I find it! These little guys grow like crazy & they matured at least a week ahead of any of my other cucumber varieties [2 weeks ahead of most]. And they are so delicious! They have a very mild flavor. The skin is super thin - you don't need to peel these at all, even for small, picky children. My kids love these. My vines have been super productive and half the neighborhood has been getting these cucumbers from us now - EVERYONE loves them and everyone loves how cute and unique they look. These will be my staple cucumber from here on out!

Disappointing flavor and textu
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Vigorous growth and fruit set

What are the cons? Little flavor, pithy.

Review:

The name is more exciting than the fruit of this cucumber plant. Lacks the flavor and color of the Lemon cuke. I pulled the plant less than halfway through the summer to replace with other more flavorful items. Would not plant again, use your garden space for another cuke of more flavor and color.

What are the pros? Tasty, early, productive, cute

What are the cons? Tough to tell when ripe

Review:

I love these little buggers! They've come in very early this year; I direct-sowed 53 days ago and pulled four of them in today (could have harvested a day or two ago, too). Three of the four are all white, one has some green blush; it received some direct sunlight. Flavor unaffected. They are mild and have a pleasant flavor with thin, soft skins. I expected them to look like white lemon cucumbers but they are much narrower and have smaller seed reservoirs than the lemons, which I think is excellent. There are literally dozens of them out there in the garden ripening away right now, on about 8 vines, and they are flowering daily so there will be a huge amount soon enough. I've looked and looked for a really good cucumber for my purposes (I use a tremendous amount of them) and it appears I may have finally found one.
