You are probably doing nothing wrong. Sounds like failure to pollinate. Are you seeing bees?

If it's just the very little, new zucchini that is rotting, then it's probably because it was not fertilized. Have you seen bees around the zucchini blooms?

If you have no insect pollinators, you may need to do it yourself. There are a few previous threads about hand pollinating.

From what I read, if it is a tiny bit, you can scrape off the rot with your nail and it will harden over and will grow. Don't know if that is a possibility or how bit of an area you have.

I have a question from the others, if a zucchini is growing, wouldn't that show that it was fertilized? I guess I don't understand all of the pollinating stuff.

Zucchini and most squash, pumpkins all have male flowers and female flowers.rotting zucchine ends 601593

The male flowers will have the flower on a thin stem, attached to the main stems.

The female flower will have the flower attached to a baby(zuc,squash,pumpkin,etc)

Embarassed If a bee/bug/human takes pollen from the male flower and put it on the female flower, then the baby will continue to grow.rotting zucchine ends 53366 If no pollination, no baby.

I got interrupted here by three grandkids and worded that incorrectly and not completely. I meant to say I
know about pollination but I didn't see how lack of pollination would make a zucchini rot. Since then I found that it indeed could. Most everyone has had an end go rotten. I have had it where the flower is what starts and then it moves up the zucchini. In that instance I have broken off the flower and the zucchini has continued to grow. Someone else had suggested if it is a teeny amount you can scrape off the rotted part with your nail and it would heal itself and continue to grow.
