I bought, several months back, at Costco (of all places) what were labeled as "mini-english" cucumbers -- they had a smoother skin than the standard cucumber and small, or no seeds, like the larger english cucumbers that can be found in most supermarkets.
I've kept my eyes open for more in other stores as they made the best dill pickles ever (especially because they were easy to fit in quart sized mason jars).
After surfing the web, I've come to find that they might better be called "mediterranean cucumber". But it still leaves me with the same question, has anyone seen them in the Boston area? Or does anyone even which time of the year I should be looking for them?
