Zucchini Or Courgette
The question a lot of people ask is it Zucchini or Courgette. The answer is they are the same vegetable. The reason why some people call it Zucchini or Courgette is that Zucchini is the Italian name and Courgette is the French name.. In the Uk everyone calls it a Courgette but most of the rest of the world actually calls it Zucchini. However, did you know that Zucchini should only be used for more than one of the vegetables as it is the plural. The word you should use for one is zucchino.
The Zucchini or Courgette comes from the same family of vegetables as the squash which is part of the gourd family. Zucchinis and Courgettes can come in different shapes and sizes as new varieties are introduced. You can get long ones, vertical growing courgettes, and round courgettes. They now also come in different colours. The regular colour for Zucchini or courgette is a dark green, but they can come in yellow and also white.
