Courgettes are easy plants to grow, producing a good yield and are similar in many ways to marrows, with a few key differences. Courgettes tend to be smaller, bushier plants compared to the trailing habit of marrows so take up less space in the garden. They are also harvested at a smaller size, so have thinner skins, making them tenderer.
Courgettes are versatile vegetables within the kitchen and can char grilled, added to ratatouille, curries or sliced into discs and used as a delicious ingredient in a frittata. The flowers of Courgette can also be eaten as delicious fritters.
