How long after the female flower blooms would you expect a mature fruit? I had one six days ago and pollinated it myself. Another one must have popped open three days ago, but I was away for two days, and the flowering was done by the time I got home. The fruits are both the same size... pretty small. About the length of my index finger.
The plant otherwise looks good and healthy. Our weather has been great - hot days (high 70s/low 80s), cooler nights (60s), only a bit of humidity, and I think I've watered pretty evenly. Not much rain the last two weeks.
Now there's a third female flower today, which I pollinated. Should I just grab the two 'baby zucchini' so the plant will keep producing? (I think they'll make a really nice side dish. )
