Cucumbers not producing fruit

We seem to not have female blossoms on our cucumber plants. Lots of male blossoms. No fruit. What is happening?

Thank you for your question. Male flowers always appear first and create pollen to fertilize the next-to- develop females. This Extension article explains cucumber sex: https://vric.ucdavis.edu/pdf/FruitSetProblems.pdf Good luck!
