Tangy, sweet and gloriously crunchy, we love Jamaican Gherkins as juicy 1 to 2-inch fruits. Delectable raw, pickled or cooked like summer squash, Organic Jamaican Burr Gherkin are extremely productive as well as pest and disease resistant, being an entirely separate species from most cucumbers. If you love their tang, go ahead and harvest them larger than 1 inch; if you love a more traditional cucumber flavor, go small.

Tangy, sweet and gloriously crunchy, we love Jamaican Gherkins as juicy 1 to 2-inch fruits.

We could not keep up with harvesting them in the cool summer of 2014 and they produced all the way until the first frost from a June planting. Originating from West Africa and brought to Jamaica, likely braided into the hair of kidnapped slaves, we were given these seeds by Adaptive Seeds and are thrilled how well they produce in the Northeast.

    We grew these on a trellis. Very vigorous grower. The vines were bejeweled with numerous, delightful cucumbers. Just pluck off the vine, give the skin a little rub, and enjoy. Crispy and juicy.

    YESSS! They are the cutest little morsels!
