Male blooms vs. female blooms on the Armenian Cucumber plants….

Male blooms vs. female blooms on the Armenian Cucumber plants. You can see the female bloom has a cucumber like bulb at its base, this will be the part that turns into the fruit. Like all squash and melon plants they require pollinators to transfer the pollen from the stamen of male flower to the pistil of the female flower. In it’s adolescent phase the cucumber plant often produce a bunch of male flowers with little to no female flowers, this is completely normal so focus on it’s leaves and watching to make sure they are a healthy green color with no signs of pests or fungus. Eventually the plant will balance out with male and female blooms.
