When i was little i used to believe that gherkins were called Gorgons. So whenever i had a burger i would ask for "no gorgons!"

When I was a 6 year old, I would say Gershwins instead of gherkins. That confused my mom, who is a classical enthusiast!

"Mommy what does a Gershwin taste like?"/"Huh?" What do you mean? Gershwin's a composer, not a type of food?"/"But mommy isn't it a pickle thing or something?"

My mom laughed

I used to beleive that Gherkins were really the genetalia of animals. I had an extremely mean cousin who kindly told me this while we were at a family get-together when I was 5 years old.. I had barely even known was genitals were!

Growing up in America, I always knew gherkins as pickles. When I was around 12 I heard the word gherkin, and I thought it was a sex toy or a dirty word of some sort. I didn't find out otherwise until very recently, I'm ashamed to say.

Up until about two seconds ago, when I read someone else's post, I really had NO idea what a gherkin was. I thought it might be some sort of little animal, like a toad or something, or a fish.

I used to believe pickles grew on bushes, like a lot of other vegetables. I was shocked when my Granny Carter said one day she was going to make pickles. "Make pickles!?" I exclaimed. I was so surprised when she explained to me that you make them from cucumbers. SHE was surprised that I was 12, and had eaten pickles all my life and didn't know that..............

I used to believe that pickles grew on trees. I also did not used to know that gherkins and pickles were the same thing and I thought gherkins were like gremlins.

Until about five minutes ago, I did not know that pickles and gherkins were the same thing.

I thought gherkins were like gnomes.

back when i was around the ages of 3 or 4, i used to think that everything was made in a factory, even food was made by hand. So i got curious and asked my mom how they make pickles. like how do they make the inside taste good. and she told me that pickles are cucumber, and that they are GROWN, not created in a factory as i believed. I look back on that now and wonder what the heck would make me think such weird things. :S

I used to believe that pickles were cucumbers, which they are, only, a pickle had the chicken pox. Therefore, I was terrified of eating pickles because I thought I would get the chicken pox!

When I was little I loved to finish the last of the dill pickles & then I'd drink the pickle juice from the jar. My Mom caught me every time & would pull it away & lecture me on how the juice would make my blood dry up inside me. I always believed that theory. I still tease her about it today now that I'm 32.
