When a flower gets properly pollinated, it starts to develop an embryo and the tissues that surround the embryo — what we call a seed. As the seed develops and matures, it gives off hormones to produce the fruit. If you have flowers, but no fruit, the flowers are not being pollinated.

Now that you are harvesting your garden, often you eat a fruit and say, “This is really good. Can I plant the seeds for next year?”
