+Jim Gettys Wasn’t there a version of that which characterised the diode characteristics of the specimens?

We unplugged it and turned the pickle around, and the other end glowed; the glowing followed the electrode instead of being associated with one end of the pickle. I assume that this was due to the relative length of the electrodes. More experimentation is called for!
