Cucurbit plants are monoecious, separated with male and female flowers on the same plant. Male flower opens first with baby fruit behind the petals, followed by female flowers. Pollination occurs if both male and female flower are open. This plants family trusts on honeybees for pollination, and honeybee doesn’t like to fly in winter.

Cucurbits pollinate doesn’t get successful in winter or cold weather.

Plants should have basic requirements like exact spacing, water supply and pest management.

Avoid use of insecticides in between 9 AM to 4 PM such female flower gets open for only one day and most prefer between hours 9 AM to 4 PM. Duration of time flower might receive more than 15 bees for proper pollination.

If you get fail in proper pollination, cucumber will not be able to produce a fruit due to incomplete pollination.
