Growing Summer Squash

Anonymous added on July 1, 2014 | Answered

Summer squash does not produce female blooms. I love summer squash, and have a small garden in backyard. I have also tried growing pumpkins, watermelon, and cantaloupe - having the same problem. Hope you can help. Saddened by this problem every year. Thanks.

Generally, they will produce mostly male (non-fruiting) blossoms early in the season, which die off, and will gradually start to produce more female blossoms as the season progresses. Give it some time and you will see it start fruiting.
