Zucchini Plants

zucchini gets about 6 inches long and starts to yellow at the blossom end

Zone we live in South Jersey. Never experienced this problem in other growing seasons. | njbethea added on June 25, 2014 | Answered

The zucchini plant itself is healthy. After the bud falls off, the zucchini starts to yellow at the bud end. This is the first year we have used this part of the yard. Could it be we need a different fertilizer? We're using Miracle Grow right now.
