The Q&A Archives: green squash

Question: fruit just turn into color brown and die,and a lot of fruits and flowers.I built a trillis and it grows gorgeously just a dissapointing part is that the fruit will not grow bigger. only a pinky finger and done!!

Answer: It doesn't sound as though the flowers are being pollinated and that's why the fruit is not growing to maturity. Later in the season it should put out lots of fruit, as long as there is insect activity around the flowers. Just be patient with your squash. Eventually you will get a nice crop. Enjoy!
