Pumpkin, Squash, Zucchini

We grow organic squashes and you can buy seeds online at out Canadian Farm. There are many names : pumpkin, zucchini, squash, but actually all of them are "Squashes".

There are two types of Squash: Winter Squash and Summer Squash.

Zucchini is a "summer squash". All squash are originated in Americas, but zucchini was developed in Italy long after it was first introduced to Europe. "Zucca" means squash in Italian.

Zucchini can grow very long - up to 1 meter in length - but usually harvested much before they reach this size. When ripe, their skin becomes hard - like a squash', and then zucchini can be stored for several months in cool dry ventilated area. When harvested young, the skin of the fruit is thin, it can be eaten fresh, like cucumber. But zucchinis are usually served cooked: steamed, boiled, baked, fried, stuffed etc.
