I have several zucchini plants and there are small fruit on them. Some of them are turning yellow and decaying at the blossom end. What is the problem and what can I do?

From your description it sounds like your zucchini has choanephora rot. This is a very common fungal disease. See the following link for additional information, http://plantdiagnostics.umd.edu/level3.cfm?causeID=463
