Zucchini or Courgette
Known by either its Italian or French name, a summer squash that grows in temperate climates. It is commonly thought of as a vegetable, but is in reality an immature fruit. It is shaped like a cucumber with ridges, its skin is dark or light green, and its cream or light green interior is crisp when raw and soft when cooked. It can be steamed, boiled, grilled, stuffed and baked, or fried.
