Light yellow/green flowers appear in abundance on the end of the branches in spring. 'B' Type flowering where the female part opens in the afternoon on the first day for 2 to 3 hours then closes. The male part opens the morning of the second day. Hence cross pollination of two varieties helps in the warmer climates. In the cooler climates opening and closing of the flower tends to overlap therefore making them more self-fertile. Bees and flies are the pollinators. Cross pollination with Hass and Reed will improve fruit set.
