Re: QUESTION: Bitter Cucumbers

Regular cucumber varieties will become bitter when exposed to hot dry conditions. Cucumber-melon varieties have always solved this problem for me. In my experience, Carosello and Armenian cucumbers are always bitter-free and burpless (don’t cause indigestion). They also tend to grow faster as the summer wears on.

Though there are other seed suppliers who may carry a few of these cucumber-melon types, tends to have some of the most varieties at a very reasonable price.
