Other types of cucumbers include the Continental (or burpless cucumber), which is long, with a hook at the end and ridges on the skin. These have a thinner skin than other cucumbers and do not contain many seeds. The prickly-skinned gherkins are picked when five to 10 cm long and are usually pickled in vinegar or salt.
