About Dino Eggs

Discovered and stabilized by Brad Gates, Wild Boar Farms, Vacaville, California. Originated from Lemon Head.
First introduced in Seed Savers 2007 Yearbook by Bill Minkey of Darien, Wisconsin. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces 3-5 oz., small to medium, bright golden plum-shaped fruits with yellow stripes. Pulp is orange-yellow, with very good flavor having a bit of an tart acidic tinge amidst its sweetness. Juicy and delicious, sweet. Very unique and uncommon. Adds a wonderful splash of color to the salad or plate.
