Growing Burr Gherkins

You can grow your own gherkin pickles and more with this pest-proof mini cuke/squash from Africa. Try growing burr gherkins to make delicious pickles and a spicy Brazillian stir-fry.

Burr gherkins aren’t just for pickling. They can be cooked like squash and served in a variety of dishes.
