The other night my husband asked me to fried zucchini for him, he is craving for soup but it is too late for me to cook it. As he requested I put a lot of onions and garlic into it.,I never heard about the vegetable zucchini until I arrived here. It looks like cucumber but taste like upo or patola.,
The zucchini (also courgette) is a summer squash which often grows to nearly a meter in length, but which is usually harvested at half that size or less. It is a hybrid of the cucumber. Along with certain other squashes, it belongs to the species Cucurbita pepo. Zucchini can be dark or light green. A related hybrid, the golden zucchini is a deep yellow or orange color.
