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 has become my favourite fresh eating cuke by far. Productive, thin skinned, sweet, no hint of bitterness even when they get rather large. I picked most of them when they were about 2x larger than a chicken egg, but even the ones that got as big as my hand were delicious!

Review:

I love these cucumbers. I have grown them for 3 growing seasons and will continue to grow them as long as I garden. Pick them when smaller than a baseball, otherwise they can have large seeds. They are great in salads, eaten like an apple which is my favorite or made into refrigerator pickles which is my wife's favorite. They are a hit with friends and neighbors who have never seen or heard of them either (they have now as I have given them plenty due to them producing so prolifically).

What are the pros? Tasty, burpless, prolific

What are the cons? large seeds

Review:

We've grown these for a couple years now and just love them. They have a fresh taste, and grow like crazy. Thin skin, so you don't have to peel. The only thing is that I have noticed their seeds can become especially large and hard at the end of the season, though this is pretty much the same with all cucumbers. I think we only notice it because these cucumbers never become bitter and we can continue to pick them quite late! Definitely give them a try.

What are the pros? INCREDIBLY THIN SKIN

What are the cons? NOT AS PROLIFIC

Review:

THESE WERE AMAZING! I'M SO IN LOVE WITH THE INCREDIBLY THIN SKIN THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO PEEL! THEY'RE SO MILD AND CRUNCHY. I'M DISAPPOINTED IN MY CUKES THIS YEAR... I DIDN'T HAVE NEAR THE AMOUNT OF CUCUMBERS THAT I NORMALLY DO AND ONLY GOT 6 FRUITS FROM MY SEEDS. I WILL TRY AGAIN NEXT YEAR IN A DIFFERENT LOCATION.

Review:

My garden will always have dragons egg cukes! I admit...I struggle with cucumbers. It's embarrassing. This year however, I had a bumper crop of these. I only kept a single plant, and have had a bountiful crop of beautiful, spineless white cucumbers. They have a great crunch. I recommend picking them early when they are the size of a goose egg. If I let them grow larger the flavor became very bland. They also did pretty well for pickles, though I prefer to eat them fresh.
