Storm Bay Posted July 26, 2008 Share Posted July 26, 2008 Our late planted garden is growing, especially the Cinderella pumpkin and the Banana Squash. At least one of the pumpkin vines is about 8 feet long already. However, the male and female blossoms seem to be blooming asynchronously and so far the first few female flowers and that round part under them are rotting because the flowers were done blooming with no pollen. Now, there haven't been many yet. Some male flowers are now blooming, but only female flower buds. Is this common when they first start blooming? There are lots more flowers budding. I'm hoping to harvest seeds, too, so would like to hand pollinate at least some of them. Also, has anyone here eaten squash flowers? I heard they are edible, and that you'll still get squash. Do you just eat the male flowers? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
