Personally, I never heard of them.

Yeah, but they pickle *everything* here.

You might want to try an 'ethnic' shop.  I don't know if there are
any in Brighton, but the next time you're in London you might want to
try.  Here in Edinburgh, we have a place called Valvona & Crolla that
sells kosher dills, amongst a plethora of other things (I vaguely
remember some Hebraic script on the jar, to boot).  I'm sure there's
some place like that in your neck of the woods.
