Growing zucchini

Zone Baytown, Texas between Houston and Beaumont on I 10 | Anonymous added on May 18, 2017 | Answered

I have one plant that I bought at Walmart . It is growing and blooming but I do not have any zucchini yet. Seems like the blooms fall off but no veggie. What is wrong?

This is a super common problem, believe it or not - and it's completely normal. There are a couple possible reasons: male blooms and poor pollination. The male blooms aren't an issue, and this article will tell you why:

You can also pollinate the blooms yourself by going from one to the next with a Q-tip and rubbing the Q-tip on each bloom, all around the plant with the same Q-tip.
