Oyong's flower has bright yellow color.
So vivid...

The first flower is usually show up on the 30 days after sowing.
This plant has both of male and female flowers.
The male flower is more dominant.
I have noticed that male flowers dominated about 80-90% of total flowers on each plant.
We can see the ovule or little 'fruit candidate' on the female flower.
The flowers start blooming  on the afternoon, and will furl in the morning.
We can find soft sweet fragrance around this vine in the afternoon.

If the pollination is success, so the petal will furl and turn brownish.
And the 'little fruit' will be turn dark green and bigger, also a little bit glossy.

Next we will talk about the fruit.
Enjoy the series, and have a great week...

  3. I often think that flowers on fruit or vegetables are just as attractive as ornamentals, it's true in this case.
