for 22 years i was oblivious to cucumbers and gherkins being the same food. this was all destroyed one fateful night by someone i loved. my life has never been the same since.

Hasn't everyone, at some point or another, believed that pickles grew on trees? I sure did.

I used to think that a gherkin was some kind of piece of machinery. I wonder where I got THAT from...

When I was 19 I found out that pickles don't, in fact, grow on trees as I had always thought. I picked up a short little cucumber and said "Gee, this is just about the size of a pickle" and had to sit through my boyfriend's entire family laughing at me.

OK, for th LONGEST time, i used to believe pickles just grew. i had no idea they were cucumbers. NO IDEA. i had seen cucumbers, i had seen pickles, but in my head, they had NO relation. so naturally, things like pickled eggs were made from the pickle plant. so i had no idea that pickles were actually cucumbers!

I used to believe that pickles grew on two types of trees....dill ones and sweet ones. You picked the pickles put them in water and they made their own juice!

When my brother was little my family used to call gherkins "pickled monkeys' willies" and my brother thought that was what they actually were. It didn't stop him eating them though. But he also used to eat the cat's biscuits, and when he was about one I found him gingerly tasting his own poo, directly from his nappy that had just fallen off. It's amazing what kids will put in their mouths.

I used to think a gherkin was some sort of sea creature so when I asked what was on my burger I was shocked to find out it was actually a vegetable

I used to believe the pickles were the fingers of martians. Because of that, I did not eat pickles.

It was not until college that I found out that pickles came from cucumbers. As God as my witness, I thought there was a pickle plant. Thanks Vince.

Up until about a month ago I thought that the derogatory term "wally" was another word for gherkin!? (I didn't invent that, a girl down my road who was older and I foolishly thought wiser than me told me that).

My dad told me that if I ate pickles before I went to sleep I would have really bad nightmares, but I have always loved them ever since I was little, and still do.
