Baryons with a single heavy quark are being studied experimentally at present. Baryons with two units of heavy flavor will be abundantly produced not only at future colliders, but also at existing facilities. In this paper we study the production via heavy quark fragmentation of baryons containing two heavy quarks at the Fermilab Tevatron, the CERN LHC, DESY HERA, and the NLC. The production rate is woefully small at HERA and at the NLC, but significant at pp and pp- machines. We present distributions in various kinematical variables in addition to the integrated cross sections at hadron colliders.
