What does a male flower look like on a cucumber plant?
The male flower is also bright yellow and grows close to the stem and only has a thin stalk. For indoor varieties the male flowers should be removed as soon as possible to avoid the possibility of fertilising the female flower on the developing cucumber fruit.
Why do my cucumbers have blooms but no fruit?
A cucumber plant will flower but produce no fruit if there is a lack of either male or female flowers on the plant. A lack of fruit will also occur due to poor pollination. Growing conditions (such as temperature, weather, and nitrogen levels) also affect pollination and flower production.
