I have grown courgettes/ zuchinnis for a few years now and have never had a problem, but a freind of mine who has a farm out of town has just this year decided to grow her own vege. But she has had a problem with the above and they only grow to the size of your index finger. They are yellow and some die off, is this a plant species or is it something that she isnt doing. She assures me that they are getting plenty of water. The fruit looks healthy enough but is just really small Hope to hear from you very soon Cheers Christine
