Fun Fact Friday - Zucchini

This week we veer a little from the bees and look at zucchini. It appears I've planted far more zucchini than I know what to do with right now. I've cooked a fair amount of zucchini in my time but have always kept it simple. So as with everything I've been researching and looking at different options and as I do I've come across some fun to me facts.

  1. Zucchini is actually a fruit though most believe it to be a vegetable.

  2. A zucchini has more potassium than a banana

  3. The squash blossom is edible and considered a delicacy in some areas.

  4. Size does matter! Smaller to medium is better

  5. The darker the skin the more nutrients that are inside.

  6. The largest zucchini on record 69 1/2 inches long and weighted 65 pounds!!!!!
