Sorry KEF you are putting the cart before the horse. There is always a baby courgette before pollination if it is a female flower. The male flowers obviously have no courgette behind the flower.
Poor pollination is always a problem at the start of the season until the males and females plus pollinating insects get in sync. If it is a good summer you will be giving courgettes to anybody that doesn't run away fast enough when they see you coming bearing a carrier bag.
Anyone for courgette and chocolate cake?
