Cucumbers are all bitter. Why?
I've never grown cucumbers before as they're not my favorite thing to eat, especially in large numbers. But I grew them anyway and I've been disappointed in that all but one so far have been bitter tasting. I thought maybe it was the variety but I tried one tonight that was very pleasant and normal tasting for a change.
The plant has seemed happy, sprawling, and productive.
What makes cucumbers bitter? Not enough water? Too much water? I don't know if I'll bother with them next year, but I'd like to know what might have gone wrong in case I do.
