Baby marrow, Courgette, Murgpampoen (Afr.)
The zucchini (American English) or courgette (British English) is a summer squash which can reach nearly 1 m (100 cm) in length, but is usually harvested when still immature at about 15 to 25 cm. A zucchini is a thin-skinned cultivar of what in Britain and Ireland is referred to as a marrow and in South Africa, a baby marrow. Zucchinis are common in home gardens and supermarkets, and the young fruits are cooked as a vegetable. The flowers are also edible and are sometimes fried.
