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.

Review:

So far my favorite cucumber. Mild, juicy and all of the cucumbers taste the same, never had a bitter one even with 99 degree days. Great germination. I also love the look of the fruit.

Review:

I liked growing these. They grew easily without much effort. I had no trouble getting them to climb - they went crazy. But my trellis is made out of 7 foot bamboo that looks like scaffolding / is a big cube I use for growing huge tomatoe plants (so maybe they prefer a different type a of trellis than most people use?). They look fun and between a few plants I had hundreds! I found they had more seeds than I care for, but they still tasted good/not bitter. Maybe people who like cucumbers more than I wouldn't mind. But my dogs love cucumbers. And they feasted every day. This is the only plant that can keep up with 3 dogs. Didn't grow this year and regretted it. Will grow next year.

Review:

These are the most prolific cucumbers that I have ever grown! I have one hill of them, from which I have so far made 10 pints of very respectable pickles and given two shopping bags full away to friends and neighbors. My 2 year old daughter loves eating the cucumbers cut up. Just an awesome vegetable!

What are the pros? Speedy germination, quick grow

What are the cons? Doesn't like to trellis

Review:

I'm always wary of new cultivars, but SO GLAD to have tried the Dragon's Egg Cucumber. Thus far it is the star in the salad garden and we're harvesting 3-4 cukes a day from just a few plants. First to sprout with 100% germination rate, first to flower, first to produce, even out-doing the ever predictible Lemon Cucumber (which hasn't produced one fruit thus far even though planted at the same time.) The flavor is mild and the seeds soft, so great for peeling and slicing into salads. Husband declares it's his favorite type of cucumber out of all we've tried thus far (usually 4 different varieties each season.) The only drawback is that my plants will not train up a trellis and instead prefers to cascade out of the raised bed. A very small irritation for the fantastic results we're getting. We will plant this variety again and include it as a garden staple.

What are the pros? Prolific Tasted Amazing

What are the cons? None

Review:

Started indoors late March and planned to transplant mid April. We had very inconsistent temps this spring so we weren't able to get them out until early May. We planted 6 plants in a very small area because we normally lose half to the local rabbits. All 6 plants are alive and thriving. The easiest cucumber I've ever grown. They're quite the novelty and highly prolific. Tastes amazing. Sweet, zero bitterness and causes no digestive issues. If you overlook some and they get large, they still taste great but get a little soft on the inside. Due to the thinner skin, they don't hold their crunch when pickling with water bath canning, but they are decent as quick refrigerator pickles. I will be growing these every year from now on and I tell everyone else they should too. Strangest thing about them is that for some reason they attract turtles.
