Zucchini not producing even with flowers

Asked August 7, 2019, 4:23 PM EDT

A client of ours had a zucchini is not producing vegetables even though it is sending up flowers. It has produced seven zucchini's but now she had not gotten any. The blooms just fall off. She is wondering what the issue could be. She said she has watered it and the plants look healthy. Thank you.

If you have both male and female flowers than your problem is most likely a lack of pollinators. Plant stress can also lead to aborted fruit. Hot weather can also inhibit fruit set. You can try pollinating by hand. Check out the following links:
