Whether you are trying to implement more veggies into your family’s diet or looking for ways to use all the zucchini ready for picking in the garden, we’ve got a variety of recipes that you’ll want to try out! Need a little help picking out a zucchini from the store or knowing when to pick it from your garden? Check out our tips below.
How to pick out a zucchini at the store: Choose a zucchini that is medium in size, no longer than 6 to 8 inches. Make sure it’s firm and free of any knicks and cuts. If you see tiny hairs on the zucchini, don’t pass it by, it just means it’s really fresh. Once you get it home be sure to store it tightly wrapped in the fridge for no longer than 5 days.
When to pick your zucchini from the garden: Zucchini’s grow fast, so be sure to keep an eye on them! They’re ready to pick when they are 6 inches long. Don’t fret, if they get larger they are still edible, you’ll just have larger seeds and the flesh won’t be as tender. When picking your zucchini’s don’t forget to check under the big leaves, some might be hiding under there!
