Beautiful cream-colored fruit is about the size and shape of a large egg! Mild, bitter free and sweet tasting, this little cucumber sets 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 heirloom favorite by Reinhard Kraft, a German seed collector, but this heirloom originated in Croatia.

What are the pros? Never Bitter, Mostly Smooth

What are the cons? None

Review:

These are almost as tasty as Lemon Cucumbers but are much less spikey and the plants take less room but are more prolific. It's now the only cucumber I grow! And how awesome is that name, right? So fun to tell people it's a Dragon's Egg cucumber!

What are the pros? Easy to grow. Great taste.

What are the cons? None

Review:

While we have loved everything we've purchased from Baker Creek, the Dragon's Egg Cucumbers have been our absolute favorite. The kids cannot get enough of these - which is great - because boy were these plants prolific. They grew easily, beautifully, and produced through the end of Septemeber.

What are the pros? Nice thin skin

Review:

I love these. Easy to grow. I think they produced pretty early and went until November. The kids pick them and eat them whole. I'll definitely be growing these again and skipping the lemon cucumbers.

What are the pros? Flavor and appearance

What are the cons? Disease!

Review:

I started these in March in South Louisiana. Our early spring on average is fairly warm with a few cold spells. Several people stopped to tell me I was planting too early. These plants were immediately prolific! By April I was knocking on doors trying to give away! Beautiful and tasty cucumbers- I drank a lot of cucumber lime-aides in this period and put a lot of juice in freezer! However, by May/June all my dragon egg plants had diseases (only plant in my extensive garden to suffer with disease). Tried a few solutions but nothing helped; pulled up plants early. I think these plants liked our cooler spring climate than a hot and humid S Louisiana summer. Glad I planted early and got a great crop, but probably won’t grow again.

What are the pros? Cute, great for snacking

What are the cons? None

Review:

These were a great attention getter at farmers' markets. Kids and adults both liked them. I snacked on them in the garden and while selling (helps with sales if you eat your own produce). Large ones had mature but still edible seeds.
