Project Description

I love my Zucchini! The Zucchini, often mistaken for a vegetable, is a member of the squash family, also known as the courgette. The zucchini is abundant in Australia in the summer and autumn, and when fresh it is sweet to taste. When it tastes bitter it is a sure sign it has been stored for too long. In the right season, it is an excellent candidate for your home garden.

What to learn more about the amazing Zucchini? I’ll post more in a blog soon!
