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.

Amazing growth but seedy

What are the pros? prolific growth into fall

What are the cons? Too seedy

Review:

The cukes grew amazingly well producing well into the cooler fall weather. The shape was amazing and fun, but the taste was a little bitter to me and they had very large and numerous seeds, which I did not enjoy.

What are the pros? mild taste, tender

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I have been planting this little beauty in my WI garden for a few years now. Our weather has been anywhere from hot and dry to cold and wet and they have produced every time. Took these to my first farmer market last summer and they sold out each time. My 2 young boys will go out to the garden to get a few of these to eat and they do not have to look very hard. They produce like crazy and lasted until our 2nd frost in Sept. You can pretty much use these any way you want, but I highly recommend you make some dill pickles with these. Somehow I overlooked a few of them this year and they got very large and they still had an amazing taste and were still very tender. Our family's favorite!

What are the pros? Resilient, hardy, great taste

What are the cons? None

Review:

We grew these cucumbers last year (2014) and we had soooo many cucumbers even though the plants kept getting trampled and raided by our dogs (who thought the cukes tasted great too). They tasted great and were easy to grow. We liked the unique shape and coloring too.

What are the pros? wonderful texture and flavor,

What are the cons? needs a lot of water

Review:

Wonderful novelty for market garden. I've grown it two years and had terrific yields. The flavor and texture is always great, even if they get as large as my hand, still taste great.
