It's not a petite ("puh-teet"; as in a diminutive person) jury; it's a petit ("pet-ee"; small jury v. grand jury) jury.
A petit jury is a trial jury (12 in criminal cases, 8 in civil cases in federal court, 12 in state court) to hear a trial. A grand jury sits in secret and is of 16-23 to decide indictments by probable cause. You just leave it out because hardly anybody sees a grand jury unless you're on it or a witness or a federal prosecutor.
