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? 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.

Review:

Whole family loves this cucumber. Working into our 3rd year growing these and they have always been easy and dependable. My young kids love these and often prefer them to traditional cukes. Have a nice mild flavor that is great alone or used in any way you would otherwise use different cucumber varietals.

Review:

I planted these to encourage my daughter, who is a picky eater but loves cucumbers, out in the garden with me. She enjoyed the fun shape and flavor; we found the seeds a bit tough, but easily removed. The crop continued to produce late in the season and we will plant again.
