West India Burr Gherkin
(Cucumis anguria) A super funky cucumber relative great for kids’ gardens, snacking and pickling! Believed to be native to Africa, and introduced to the Caribbean and eventually the U.S. in the 1700s. Pickled and boiled by the colonists in Jamaica and a favorite of 3rd president Thomas Jefferson (who was known to be a lover of pickled gherkins). Very beautiful long vines and hundreds of small tasty fruit. Grows well in hot, humid weather. Yields better than any other cucumber. Will not cross with traditional cucumbers.
Minimum Seed Count: 25
