What's a burpless cucumber?
Wehner set out to determine if burpless cucumbers actually cause less burping or if it was more of a marketing term for oriental trellis cucumbers, of which Muncher is one. So, he fed so-called burpless cucumbers to both burp-prone and non-burp-prone judges. Although the results were not extremely conclusive, he did find slightly less gastric upset when burpless cucumbers were eaten.
