Knax Riesen (by Hengstenberg)
aka: “riesig, knackig and würzig”
Size: From 10 – 12 cm length onwards, 4-5 cm diameter
Colour: Pale green with tendency to bleached olive, dark edges
Shape: Massive, trunky, a bit plump but friendly
Crunchyness: Strong, firm, bity
Taste: After the first, slightly watery delusion -i might have been unlucky- these juicy Knax Riesen, with their delicately layered vinegar-mustardseed dressing, tasted themselves – so far! – into my one of my favourite range of gewürzgurken. Bumpy round and full flavour.
Spicyness: Decent vinegar
Persistency: less than a week (a jarr of 1550g)
Gurken Ranking: 7 out of 10
PS: Unfortunately I can only provide a normal knax family picture, (which are tastewise equally good, but smaller) because the jarr is already empty.
