Cucumbers becoming bitter and now turning white
Our cucumbers began to get bitter on the ends about a week ago. Now they are turning white while on the vine, even though they are picking size. Is there anything we can do? What is causing them to turn white, and are they still OK to eat? No, they are not of a white variety. Thank you for your help and time.
Plant stress is a common cause of bitterness. Too much water or high heat are common culprits. Once the fruit begind to turn bitter, there's not much you can do. Future fruit will also be bitter. The season is still young and you have time to plants new ones.
