The key to keeping your cucumbers from being bitter is water. Cucumbers require at least one inch of water every week. Cucumbers that miss out on being watered regularly -- even once or twice -- will become bitter.

Cucumber roots like shade. The top of the plant prefers sun however. You can try companion planting, or simply move the vines back on top of the roots daily. If you move them from side to side, they will eventually grow in a mound.
