Answer: Zucchini plants produce separate male and female blossoms. Usually the first blossoms that develop are male, which will wilt and dry up. Female blossoms will eventually be produced by the plant. You can tel lwhich are male and which are female by looking at the stem where the bloom is attached - female blossoms have a swelling, or immature ovary there. It's early in the season, so expect both kinds of blossoms to develop within a few weeks. Zucchini is quite prolific. Soon you'll have more squash than you know what to do with!
