Dark Green Zucchini

This is the traditional, reliable Zucchini that just keeps on producing. The vegetable is dark green, nice and straight. Matures in about 55 days.

History records that Columbus carried this then unfamiliar member of the cucumber family back to Europe after his first voyage. In Italy, it acquired the name “Zucchino,” meaning a small squash; the French name for a Zucchini, which the English later adopted, is “Courgette.” Italian immigrants later brought the Zucchini back to the United States, where it became the most popular and commonly available variety of summer squash.

In a culinary context, the Zucchini is treated as a vegetable; it is usually cooked and presented as a savory dish or accompaniment.
