Cucumber Mystery?

Dave Feldman | Jan 6, 2002 08:29 PM

A correspondent of mine claims that when peeling a cucumber, if you peel the skin from the sides first, and then chop off the ends, it will be fine, but if you chop the ends off first, and then peel the skin off, it will be bitter.

This doesn't make any sense to me. If it is true, what possible explanation is there?
