Visit your gardening store or shop online to find the right cucumber seeds, or use seeds from a grown cucumber. Certain types of cucumber seeds have less cucurbitacin and taste less bitter.
Purchase new hybrid varieties of cucumber seeds. These seeds are often labeled as “burpless.” These hybrids tend to be much less bitter.
Use the Asian varieties of the burpless hybrid seeds instead of American types if available. According to research published in 2000 in “Hort Technology,” the Asian cucumbers are significantly less “burpy” than any type of American cucumbers. American cucumbers had a mean rating of 3.0 to 3.5 on the burpiness scale, while Asian cucumbers had a mean rating of 0.5 to 1.0 on the scale. http://www.ebiochem.com/product/cucumber-extract-10-1-7002
Plant your cucumbers in a space with ample sunlight. Avoid cool or shaded locations. Apply a layer of mulch, such as bark or straw, to help conserve moisture and keep away weeds.
Provide uniform moisture to your cucumber plants. Water the cucumbers to provide 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water during dry periods to keep the burp out of your cucumbers.
Cut off the stem ends before consuming your cucumbers. Peel away the skin using a paring knife or vegetable peeler. The skin usually contains most of the burp in cucumbers.
