High Prairie Farm (Brookings)

SKU: N/A Category: Tags: , , Product ID: 17940

Description

Small European gherkin with dark green skin, very tender with crisp sweet flavor, great for fresh eating or pickling. Grown at Valley Flora Farm (Langlois) and High Prairie Farm (Brookings). Both farms use organic practices. Available by the pound, or in 4-pound bags (the 4-lb. option is the perfect amount to make a gallon of pickles!)

Gherkins are known for their crunchy, juicy consistency; skin color can vary, from light to dark green, as can size, from 3-6 inches. Generally, Gherkins have a bumpy skin texture. Cucumbers for pickling refer to cucumbers that are used for processing or making pickles. This doesn’t mean they can’t be eaten fresh, but their thinner skins, crunchy texture and smaller seeds make them ideal for pickling.
