Buyer's guide

Fresh gherkins are in season from June to October, but pickled gherkins can be found year-round. If buying fresh gherkins, look for small, firm, unblemished specimens. Pickled ones should be bright green, and the vinegar should be clear.


Fresh gherkins can be stored in the fridge for up to one week. They should be pickled rather than frozen.
