Zucchini comes from the Italian word which means tiny squash or undeveloped marrow. Often mistaken with the English courgette, they both come from the same plant but the Zucchini is actually the American version of the British marrow, with different terms used depending on the dominate language of the specific country. A zucchini is a squash vegetable and is normally harvested immature at 15 to 25 cm (6 to 10 in).
