I'm new here so bear with me. Enjoyed reading your comments regarding small zucchini fruit shriveling up. I had read that this issue could be caused by lack of pollination but they fruit that are shriveling up are only 3/4 of inch long and the flowers at the end are too immature to have developed fully therefore they have not opened up. So they have not opened to be available for pollination so I'm a bit confused about how that could be the problem. I do have one 5 inch zucchini on the plant that I just picked in case that is the problem. It looks fine but never turned dark green and is a very pale to whitish green. Thanks!
