Hi Premlatha,

Iam growing ridge gourd.had harvested five gourds already.Do check if the flower is pollinated.If there is not enough pollinators,do try hand pollinating.It always had worked for me.regarding the fertilisers,I use home made compost and I think it works fine for the plants.

Regards,

malini
