Different variety? You can get all different colours of zucchini not just blackjack (which is the supermarket one)

I was about to say different variety and then I saw Claire's comment. Yep, I'd agree with Claire.

Sally said...

Yeah I was thinking variety too.
At least yours have grown. Mine were eaten by snails before they got established. Boo- hoo.

Hi Sarah,
I have planted these lighter coloured zuccs this year for a change. Although I seem to be getting some through that have dark green strips running down them. They still taste the same!

they look like white zuchinni's to me, they all taste the same but I agree..when I first saw white ones I was a tad wary,cheers Vickie

Different variety was my first thought too. Enjoy them....I bet they look pretty on a plate!

Mine are exactly the same and I was shocked initially too. They are the Lebanese variety and taste great.

The lebanese variety is light in color and much tastier, I think, than the dark colored ones. Enjoy!

I bought some of these at the farmer's market yesterday - they're a buttery cream variety - delicious with a little lemon juice and pepper ( and butter if you're not dieting).... lucky you!

Well I always plant BlackJack and have copious amounts of fruit, this year I mistakenly bought the Lebanese ones and honestly, mine have been useless. They have been in for two months, hardly grown, no fruit, mildew - need I go on!
