Solution :-

The cucurbits have unisexual flowers. These types of flowers have stamen or pistil. Staminate flowers, for example, feature vivid yellow petals and stamens, which indicate the male reproductive mechanism. On the other hand, Pistilized flowers only have the pistil, which represents the female reproductive structure. If the fruit is visible in a fertilized female flower, it is very small and hardly visible. Other examples of plants that have unisexual flowers are papaya, corn, cucumber, etc.
