They're the little pickling cukes.

Farmers markets and some super markets have them at the end of the summer.

Kirbys are those small cucumbers often called "pickling" cukes.

You can find them in supermarkets.

Unless you specifically need a small cuke, you should probably be able to sub a regular or English cuke if you can't find them.

We can find (in northern VA) Kirbys early in the season at several supermarkets and at many farmers' markets.

We make refrigerator prickles from them.
