Zucchini not producing

My zucchini plants are huge with lots of gorgeous blossoms but they seem to be almost all male. Is their anything I can do to increase my chances of getting a crop?

Re: Zucchini not producing

Just be patient .... It can take them several weeks of producing male blossoms before they produce many female ones. It helps makes sure the pollinators are there by the time the female blossoms show up.

Re: Zucchini not producing

Weather can affect flower production. If it is too hot or too cold, few if any female flowers will bloom.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
