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.

Review:

This had survived a massive hail storm that destroyed my house. It's producing late due to wired weather but is producing in mass amounts despite not being a huge plant.

What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? None

Review:

These grew well in my raised beds with no trellising, produced earlier than my regular cuke variety and were prolific producers. Can be eaten straight from the garden. Great taste, small seeds, not bitter. Perfect for cuke salads. Love this little cuke and will grow it every year.

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Watering

Review:

These taste like a cuke should. They are crisp and not at all bitter, not even the skins. You can eat them without peeling, although I prefer to peel them. Once they start producing, there are many many many of them. My friend is trying them for pickling this year. My only complaint is that when I skipped watering them for 2 days, they wilted severely. This could have been that I am using a growbox to grow them and it is a completely different system from raised bed or regular gardening. This is the second year I have grown them and I plan to grow them every year.

What are the pros? Flavor, thin skin, color

What are the cons? picky growers

Review:

These cuc's are staples in our garden now, you cant beat the crisp texture and light fruity flavor, no bitterness at all and the skin is so thin and buttery it ever needs to be peeled, best picked at tennis ball size. We usually end up eating them all before they even see the kitchen. They do best in a little bit of shade as the leaves wilt very fast and crisp in no time. Would do very well in a large pot.

Review:

AS ALWAYS, BAKER CREEKS' SERVICE WAS OUTSTANDING. I RECIEVED MY ORDER PROMPTLY. THE DRAGON EGG SEED CAME UP THE FIRST PLANTING WITHOUT PROBLEM. IT EVEN GREW WELL IN A NEGLECTED AREA. AS VEGETABLES GO, CUCUMBERS USUALLY ARE NOT MY FAVORITE. DRAGON EGGS THOUGH WERE DELICIOUS, THIER FLAVOR SURPRISED ME. I KEPT AN EYE ON THOSE PLANTS JUST WAITING FOR MORE TASTY DRAGONS EGGS. MY BAD WAS NOT PLANTING THESE IN MY REGULAR GARDEN-THEY DIDN'T FRUIT AS MUCH AS I WANTED. I AM GREEDY FOR THEM THOUGH! THIS SEASON, I AM GOING TO PLANT MY DRAGON EGGS CUCUMBERS IN A BETTER PLACE. AS I ENJOYED THEM THAT MUCH! . TRY THESE GREAT LITTLE CUCUMBERS, THEY ARE EASY TO GROW, FUN, AND BEST OF ALL DELICIOUS!
