Cantaloupes - no Female Flowers?
So, my cantalope plants have been blossoming for about a month now w/ nary a female flower in sight. Am I missing them? I expect them to look like watermelon & cucumber female flowers but don't see how I could have 5 plants blossoming for so long w/out female flowers. I must be overlooking them. I don't have a lot of bees that frequent my garden so I do my own pollenation for the cucumbers & watermelon. The bumblebees take good care of the squash & tomatoes but seem to overlook the others. Are the female flowers for cantaloupes real obvious or do I need to look closer? There has only been one flower so far that I thought could be it. I would really like some cantaloupes this summer & just want to pollenate correctly. Thanks!
