Zucchini, like all cucurbits, have separate male and female flowers. The make flowers come on first to attract the bees with their pollen. A couple of weeks later, the plant will produce female flowers that will produce a fruit. (The female flowers will have a bulge at the stem end of the flower that looks like a baby zucchini.) Then you will have more zucchini than you will know what to do with!
