I read this about eggplants sometime in the past.  It is the male eggplants
that are bitter.  Male eggplants can be distinguished by the bumpier
surface- sort of rounded points- at the end opposite from the stem.  Look
for an eggplant that is one smooth curve at that end.

This may not be true, and I may have the genders mixed up, but since reading
this and always buying eggplants with rounded ends I've never had a bitter
