Dragon’s Egg Cucumbers

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!
