The small immature cucumbers that are known as dills or gherkins require longer processing than most vegetables, especially if their deep green color is to be fixed; they also need partial cooking. Select gherkins of the same size.

A gherkin is a very small sweet pickle, about the size of a pinky finger, but green and wrinkly.
The gherkin pickle is a cucumber that has been pickled in a brine. It is often left to ferment with sugar, herbs such as parsley of tarragon, and some fruit juices, but the underlying vegetable must always be a cucumber for it to be considered a gherkin.

Gherkins, of course. Americans recognize the existence of the word.However, we're more likely to just say "pickle".
Gherkins (cornichons in French) are smaller than regular cucumbers, and are picked young and dark green -- generally specifically for pickling. The taste is generally similar, though it is firmer.
A gherkin is a specific type of pickle. So, all gherkins are pickles, but only a small percentage of pickles are gherkins.
