We grow both green & yellow zucchini. There's no taste difference between the two, but the yellow are a bit more tender and therefore cook a bit quicker! We begin to harvest zucchini in late June, and continue into September.
Baby Zucchini & Zucchini Blossoms
In addition to regularly sized zucchini, we also harvest a few baby/mini zucchinis. These little guys are not only super tender and sweet, but also pretty adorable. They are sold on their own, and sometimes along with zucchini blossoms/flowers!
Zucchini blossoms are quite the delicacy. Before consuming, be sure to remove the stamen (inside the flower) using your fingers or scissors. Once the stamen is removed, the blossoms can be enjoyed raw in salads, sauteed along with other veggies, or sauteed and added to pasta or pizza! Our family favourite is to stuff the blossoms with a soft cheese (like cream cheese or goat cheese) along with some herbs, bread them, then either bake, pan-fry, or deep-fry. So delicious!
