Zucchini is a backyard garden staple.  What’s not to love?  It is super easy to grow, packed with nutrition and has a mild flavor that is agreeable to even the pickiest eaters.

  • Zucchini is low in calories.  One medium-sized squash  (yes, an entire zucchini) has  only 33 calories.
  • Zucchini is a good source of Vitamins A and C, potassium, folate and manganese.
