Dragon's Egg Cucumber (Heirloom, 60 Days)

Hailing from the cave of your local dragon's lair this novelty cucumber is another reason why growing heirlooms can be so much fun. Originally from Croatia, its cream colored skin and chubby oval shape really do look like an egg growing from a vine. It has a refreshing, mild flavor, doesn't need peeling, and yields well; a few plants will be all you need, picking them every one to two days for the best fruit.  

 25 seeds

PLANTING

Cucumis sativus

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2-1" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant 36-48" apart after last frost. 

Sowing Outdoors: Sow after last frost when soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow a few seeds every 36-48". 

Harvest: Check and pick every day to keep the harvest flowing.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. Trellising the vines allows for good air circulation, takes up less space and provides shade for heat sensitive crops like lettuce. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

We just loved growing these cucumbers. They were directed seeded to the garden, grew excellently and tasted wonderful! Even my cucumber hating husband enjoyed these in an occasional salad.
