My, Grandma, what big zucchinis you have

Some people let their zucchinis (and cucumbers) go too long so that even though they’re big and meaty at that stage, they are also pithy and seedy.

This variety, Costata Romanesco, however, grows huge even before the blossom falls off (which is when they should be picked) and even when huge (this baby is 13″ long and 2lb 14oz), it is firm and not at all seedy.

Thanks to Jill Kuhn’s post for reminding me to share this. πŸ™‚

  1. I’ve never tried such a zucchini. Very pretty stripes :-). I made a much smaller zucchini into one small loaf earlier this week. I would have made it sooner but so, so, so hot 2 weeks ago.

    I made a classic summer zucchini bread last week
