Sometimes cucumbers can be bitter. But if you peel them and using a spoon, remove their seeds, it will take away the bitterness. Some cucumbers don't need to be peeled or deseeded, so I would taste a chunk before removing important nutrition from your vegetable. The dark green slicing cucumbers in your CSA shouldn’t have bitter skin with very few seeds to make it easy on you!
