Veggie Type: Gourd
Peak months: June-September
Uses: If you’re asking yourself how to tell the difference between yellow zucchini and summer squash, here’s your answer! Since zucchini is a type of summer squash, these confounding veggies are actually both zucchinis and summer squashes. The flavor is very similar to that of a green zucchini and they can be prepared identically. For a quick meal, peel, slice, and sauté yellow zucchini with (or without) other summer vegetables for a tasty mixture that you can add to pasta, couscous, or rice.
