National Zucchini Day

Also known as Courgettes in some parts of the world, zucchini is a fruit that is treated like a vegetable.  Not native to the US, zucchini was brought to America in 1920 by Italian immigrants.


Zucchini can grow up to 3 feet long.  The largest recorded zucchini was over 6 feet long and 65 pounds.  Smaller zucchini's are more flavorful. making them ideal for frying, stewing, soups etc.  Use larger zucchini's for baking.

Delicious and a good source of fiber too!
