You say they are bitter Paul , do you grow f1 hybrids
(All female varieties ) ?
These are a bit more expensive but you don't have to mess about taking off any flowers.I just leave them to grow lots of fruits. I started off growing the others but found that if I missed just one flower that wanted to come off my cucumbers were bitter.
I have grown "munchkins" this year ,it's recommend ed that they are picked around three inches. The plants produce loads !
So for the price of £ 3-50 for 5 seeds to having had 35 cucumbers up to now it works out a fraction of even a 45p shop/ market bought cucumber.
