The flower can vary in colour from yellowish green to cream to white. Flowers appear soon after the vine emerges. The flowers are monoecious, that is, individual flowers are either male or female, but both sexes can be found on the same plant. Male flowers appear in open clusters while females flowers, distinguished by a swollen base, usually appear individually. The plant is self-fertile, i.e. pollen from the male flowers can fertilise the female flowers on the same plant; pollination is by insects.

Famous quotes containing the word flower:
“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because its the answer to everything. To Why am I here? To uselessness. Its the streaming reason for living.

—Enid Bagnold (18891981)
