Zucchini, or the courgette is a summer squash of the Cucurbita pepo species and is dark green in colour. It is treated as a vegetable although actually classed as an immature fruit. It has a female flower which has a golden blossom at the end of each ‘fruit’ as well as male flower-which grows directly on the stem. The flowers are edible and often used decoratively.

Plant position and soil: Likes a sunny spot/ partial shade in moist but well drained soil, keep watering regularly but decrease frequency as the weather begins to cool.
