Hurray!! Finally my pumpkin plants bear me fruits. There are total 3 baby pumpkins now. One of them are round while the other two shaped like a bottle.
Both the male and female flowers of pumpkin have no chance to bloom as they were terribly attacked by fruit flies. They dropped before they have chance to bloom.
I tried to wrap some of the flowers with plastic bag, hoping that some of them may survive.
I really need to try my luck. The pumpkin plants look so fertile but no fruit. How sad.
So, I come out with an idea to store the successfully bloomed male flower in the fridge. Luckily I had a female pumpkin flower that will be bloomed in 2-3 days I guess.
U know, this really work! The male flower still looks fresh after 3 days kept in the fridge. Of course, I do not want to miss the chance & I hand pollinate them…hehe
Finally I manage to “produce” 3 baby pumpkins. Ehem…
