Folks. Can male/female flowers be determined from this shot?

I can't tell for sure in that shot. The early (young plant) blooms are usually all male. The female blooms have a very tiny fruit at the base of each bloom. Male blooms do not.
If it takes a long time to grow, remember that if nobody plants it, nobody has it.

When you see cantaloupe you have a cantaloupe flower.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
