Result of Yellow Zucchini Experiment黃色夏南瓜授粉實驗結果
I checked the result this morning, flower is wilt and growing zucchini! Great! I am amazed that pollen were still active!
今早檢查做實驗包覆的雌花,已經成熟脫落並且結瓜中! 真厲害! 沒想到過了這麼久的雄花花粉還這麼活躍!2013-07-20 020 (Medium)

Yellow Zucchini Experiment 黃色夏南瓜授粉實驗
Purpose of this experiment: Can I save male flower pollen when I don’t have female flower ready yet?

As picture shown: 5/29 + 6/10 same plant male flower pollen, use Q-tip to swab and store in small re-sealable bag then store in freezer. This morning pollinated a same plant female flower and then cover female flower with clear plastic bag. In three days, this female flower will wilt and come off then we will know the result.
