This year I have planted several kinds of zucchini and the first plants (black beauty) is full of growing flowers. Unfortunately most of them are female. The first male flowers are just starting to show but it will probably still be more than a week before they will be ready to open. By then I will have had at least a dozen or so little zuccs that won't get fertilized. In fact there are 3 that looked yesterday as so they will be opening their flowers today.
They are about the size of a finger (perfect actually for sauteeing them with just a bit of garlic) and I was wondering if there would be anything wrong with harvesting them even so they haven't been fertilized?
