I would guess pollination. 8" is a little long, in my experience, for that, but I don't know Zephyr. I've seen that commonly at 3-6".
I've had poor luck with unassisted pollination of zucchini in my hoop houses, despite their being next to the open sides. I'll be trying to help things along this year.
