I cut mine off the stalk last night and removed the petals one by one, first the usual six, then the inner petals. On the outside of two inner petals I found 2 male things, larger at the bottom, rounded, usual size, no pollen.

Inside the very small inner leaf I found what must be the ovary. Same size as the males but rounded at the top and with a small hole.

So now I know where to fertilize if I ever want to. I prefer the singles.
