Cucumbers, Cantaloupe and Watermelon
I was reading through my "Vegetable Gardener's BIBLE" book and came upon this on page 253...
"Bitter Relative: Grow melons far enough from cucumbers and winter squash so the vines cannot intertwine. The melon will be bitter if their blossoms are pollinated by either of these related plants."
So my question is... have any of you grown cucumbers, cantaloupe, and watermelons together (I am taking about very small varieties.. petite sizes) and have noticed a bitter flavor?
