Zucchini is an immature vegetable marrow. It is a member of Cucurbitacea family (also known as the Gourd family) which also consists of pumpkins, cucumbers, squash, and melons. Zucchini is one of the easiest vegetables to grow in temperate climates.

Zucchini and marrows (larger more mature zucchini) are annuals, have a bush habit and are frost-prone at all stages of growth. Rapid germination and vigorous growth occur when soil temperature reaches 20°C. First fruits can often be harvested from 40 to 50 days after sowing. Zucchini bears separate male and female flowers and pollination is assisted mainly by bees.

Because of its rapid growth, the fruit soon becomes a marrow. Constant picking also prevents formation of seed and stimulates further fruit-set. One plant can produce up to 40 fruit a season if properly cared for.

Quick growing, popular vegetable. Likes organic matter added to well drained soil, though not heavily fertilized, add lime to obtain pH of 6.5.

Zucchini is an excellent plant for beginners. They are sturdy, easy to grow, require little maintenance and most of all: they give you so much food. If you look after your zucchini, it will keep producing for ages! They can even be grown on balconies if you have the space for a planter.
