Comment
Zucchini (scientific name: Cucurbita pepo 'Melopepo') is a non-cold-tolerant, non-desiccating annual vegetable in the family Cucurbitaceae. It is a species of the cultivar called the "Pepo Pumpkin" (Cucurbita pepo), which stands for the variety name. In Japan, it is mainly the thick-skinned, green-fleshed variety called "green toska" that is edible. Other varieties include "Aurum", which is long and slender with green skin and yellow flesh. It has a dark green surface and looks like a cucumber in terms of size and thickness. However, it does not have warts. It tastes more like an eggplant than a cucumber. It can be used in stir-fry, deep-fried or stewed dishes, or peeled and sliced for eating raw or in salads.
