About West Indian Gherkins

Burr gherkins, also known as West Indian burr gherkins, are one of the old-time favorites among heirloom gardeners because of their productivity and multiple uses in the kitchen _ plus their pest-free maintenance. Their flavor is mild and resembles cucumbers (when young), without the strong _green_ bitterness of some common cucumbers. You can eat them raw or pickled, or even cooked like zucchini.
