Dragon’s Egg Cucumbers

Dragon's Egg cucumbers with backyard eggs

How beautiful is this? Eggs from my Barred Rock, my Easter Egger, my Cochin, and my very own backyard dragons! (What, you didn’t know I had backyard dragons?)

This Dragon’s Egg heirloom variety came all the way from Croatia and is one of my favorite cucumbers to grow this season. The palm-sized cukes have smooth cream-colored skin and seedy white flesh. They’re just the right amount of sweet, crisp and juicy, and even better, they’re quite the eye-catcher in the garden. Sometimes I don’t even want to slice them up!

    Wow. Those look cool! I’ve never seen anything like them before. 

    How do they go with fresh homemade hummus or tzaziki?

      I haven’t tried them with hummus or tzatziki, but I imagine they’d be good. These cukes aren’t bitter at all.

    Where can one get these seeds? I’d like to try them next season.
