The white spots on the leaves of your zucchini are very common and appear to be a natural occurrence. The leaves are capable of adequate photosynthesis to sustain the plant and to produce fruit. The variation in productivity of the plant is also a common event. As you may be aware, there are male and female flowers on zucchini plants and there are cycles when female flowers will be produced and there will be a flurry of fruit production, then the plant seems to rest for a while before beginning a new cycle. Continue to monitor your plants for any other problems and provide them with routine nurturing.
