RE: 2 dif sexs?

Not to worry. Squash plants almost always have male flowers for a while before putting out any female flowers. They should have female flowers soon.
I used this a few years ago to cross a short season squash with a Mexican squash that would put out male flowers early enough to pollinate Butternut squash, but never put out female flowers early enough for the squash to ripen in my zone.
