Zuchinni plant problem

United States Us

My zuchinni plants grew big and has many zuchinni growing but they get yellow and mushy at the ends. Some of the leaves have started to yellow and others have a silverish spotting on them. Is this a fungus? How do I treat it?



I've had this problem before - I not absolutely sure, but I think it may be because of inadequate polination. The big flowers on thin stems are the male flowers - you need to get a paintbrush and get some pollen off them and put it on the stamen of the female flowers, with the baby courgette/zuchinni attached. Re the silvery markings, I believe this is just normal leaf markings for these plants! Hope this helps.
