manual Pollinating inside poly tunnel

I want to know how to manually pollinate musk melon, pumpkin, bitter gourd and cucumber flowers inside a poly tunnel, as I am not sure they are a parthenocarpic variety.

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Suresh.

Since these plants are all members of the cucurbit family, the procedure for pollination is similar. First, identify the male and female flowers. Cucurbit female flowers have a tiny unfertilized fruit at the base and contain a stigma, while the male flowers will contain stamens, as shown in the below article. The male flowers may begin to show up earlier than the female flowers.
