gherkin

Just stumbled upon this word: gherkin noun

US pronunciation of this word/ËgÉË.kɪn//ËgÉË-/ n [C]

a small type of cucumber (= long thin green vegetable) which is often pickled (= kept in vinegar)

New one to me but I see a few persons have used the word in discussions. Searching for images 19 of the first 20 images I found were of a building somewhere. One image was a cucumber.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Interesting, ten days after I mention my discovery, gherkins shows up over in discussions.
