Just stumbled upon this word: gherkin noun
US pronunciation of this word/ËgÉË.kÉªn//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.
