Hi, I need some help sexing cantaloupe flowers, I suspect so far my flowers are all male, but I can't find good reference pictures online. Can anyone help? These are indoor plants so I'll need to manually pollinate them.

The clue is in the flower stem.

Males will have a thin elongated stem while females will have a shorter stem that ls slightly swollen with what will become the cantaloupe if the flower is pollinated.

 

best regards

Okay thanks, so far there's been 2 more flowers, also males, hopefully I'll have a female soon to compare 😄

Can finally see the difference now that I have a female. Male on the right and female yet to open on the left.
