The plant is super productive and a fast-growing vegetable and it’s from the gourd family (Cucurbitaceae). They are popular in home gardens and supermarkets and their young fruits are cooked as vegetables. The flowers zucchini produce are as well edible and sometimes fried.
Whenever you harvest your zucchini, ensure you handle the plant gently to avoid breaking or damaging the stems. To harvest zucchini, simply use a sharp tool such as a knife, pruners, or scissors. Cut the stem one to two inches away from the fruit.
