Veggie Type: Squash
Peak months: June-September
Uses: The many varieties of summer squashes include tatuma squash (first picture) and yellow and green zucchini (second picture). Tatuma squash is very similar to a zucchini and can be used interchangeably in recipes. Try grilling, stir-frying, ratatouille-ing, or making zucchini bread with either the zucchini or the tatuma. While summer squashes may be shaped differently and have slightly different flavors, they generally mix well when stir-fried or grilled together.
