Gherkins are tiny cucumbers used for pickles, and these are the best; seedless, bitter-free, and uniform in shape. Use as small as 1½” long, or up to 4″ for making excellent sweet pickles, French cornichons (“little horns”), or for fresh use. Plants are vining at up to 72″; grow against a trellis or fence for support. Botanical Interests’® Hokus Gherkin Cucumber Seeds are USDA Organic and have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
