Useful cucumber gherkins

Ornishon is not a grade, but a size. Gherkins can be harvested from cucumbers of any sort, but the sorts specially designed for harvesting gherkins are more delicious than, for example, gherkins taken from salad varieties of cucumbers.

Gherkins can be torn already after one or two days from the moment of tying, when their length is only 3-5 cm. Even being so small, they are small crispy cucumbers, perfectly suitable for preservation.
