Has anyone tried to grow these and make little Gherkin pickles?
I just ordered these seeds from here to try:

Interesting you should post this. I was just thinking about growing some gherkins to make dill pickles. I'll keep an eye on this thread.

I've always loved eating these tiny pickles, but have only actually pickled the larger cucumbers. When I started thinking about these, I wasn't sure if you just picked the cucmbers when they were tiny or used another variety for these. So...thanks to google...I ran across info on these. Now here I go...jumping in feet first to find out. :D


(Just noticed I said "Feet" first. I think the old saying was "Head" first. But as usual, I'll try most anything, but with a little caution!)
