Acorn Squash- Lots of Flowers Only One Squash

Anonymous added on July 24, 2011 | Answered

I planted acorn squash, and the plant itself (leaves, vines, etc. ) are super healthy with LOTS of flowers, but I have only ONE squash. It's good size, not quite ready to eat, but why don't I get more than one from so many flowers? Anything I can do?

If you are seeing fruit but they are falling off, this article will help:
