Is your squash nice and healthy and puts out tons of blooms but there are no fruits forming? Don’t worry too much! This happens often with squash and it may be just a simple wait and see solution! Squash produces separate male and female flowers. If you don’t have both male and female flowers you can’t have pollinated flowers for squash production.
Female flowers of squash, zucchini, and other cucurbits will have a “mini-fruit” just underneath the flower. That’s the ovary. If it is just a stem then you have a male flower. Male flowers almost always form first to prepare pollinators for the presence of the squash plant. It’s designed to attract them to the squash plant to improve pollination.
Squash flowers are edible so if you have an abundance of male flowers and no female flowers you have harvest them and eat them while you are waiting for more flowers to form. I recommend planting several plants (2 to 3 at least) to have a strong chance of pollination.
And don’t forget you can always pollinate your squash flowers yourself!
