Flowered courgette
A variety of summer squash with a dark green skin covering an off-white flesh. It is much like a cucumber in size and shape. They are usually harvested before they reach a foot in length. Large courgettes lose their tenderness and are much less flavorful than smaller, younger courgettes, which are a bit bland. Courgettes can be steamed, fried, sautéed, or baked and are delicious when sliced and grilled. Also referred to as a zucchini.
