zuke question

tessa74(8)August 7, 2007

Hi all, can someone pls help? do i have to pinch/scrape off the blossom after the zuke has set a veggie? i noticed one growing just fine, about the size of my finger. waited a couple days for it to get bigger but when i went to check on it, it had rotted from the blossom end up. went out again yesterday and found another finger sized one and harvested it. didn't want to take a chance of losing this one also. thanks in advance for any answers. -jenn

Looks like the female blossom is not getting pollinated. Check out the link
