Green Zucchini is the essential summer squash, the most grown of all summer squashes and also the most adaptable, fruitful and flavorful cultivars. It is lean and cylindrical with a smaller stem end. Its skin is glossy, deep green with faint cream freckles. Its flesh is crisp and creamy with an underdeveloped seed cavity due to its youth. Its flavor is peppery and complex with grassy undertones. Cooking mellows the flavor and the color.
