Chiote squash is not fruiting and wonder why?

Jersey Village, TX

I planted a chiyote Squash last April and it has grown but it is still not fruiting? Somewhere I read that it takes 150 days but I still see no flower. Should I wait more? Is Houston a good climate and is it possible that the soil pH may hinder the flowering? What are things I can do to improve the chances of flowering and fruiting?

I was told not to over fertilize them. They also need a good amount of water.

I'm from Louisiana, and was always told you need a male and a female merliton plant to do their thing....

Houston should be an excellent area to grow them in.
