PICKLED CUCUMBERS (CUCUMBER PICKLES)
This Standard applies to Pickled Cucumbers (in some countries Cucumber Pickles) intended for direct consumption which are: (a) prepared with cucumbers as the predominant ingredient; (b) prepared from desalted cured cucumbers, fermented naturally or by controlled fermentation, or from fresh cucumbers which are acidulated; (c) preserved through natural or control fermentation or added acidulants and may be further preserved by pasteurization with heat, by other physical means or by chemical preservatives. In some countries, the word “cucumbers” is associated with large size fruit whereas the word “gherkin” (in French “cornichons”) refers to small fruit. Irrespective of customary national trade practice these products are included in this Standard. This Standard does not cover finely chopped products called relish.
