Italian Courgette Verde Di Milano

Italian Courgette Verde Di Milano. This is the classic dark Italian Courgette / Zucchini variety used across a wide range of Italian dishes. This is also the perfect compact bush variety for those with smaller plots. Equally those with large plots squeezing too much in. The productive bushes will crop throughout the summer if picked on a regular basis. Early morning picked flowers can be battered and fried or in ‘frittata’, an Italian style omelette.
