Green Griller Zucchini
As the name suggests, this variety of zucchini squash is practically made for the grill. Oblong zucchinis are fatter and blockier than other varieties, yielding broad slices that are easy to flip. Fruits grow on a low, open bush, so picking them is a cinch. Leaves boast a green and silver variegated pattern that looks really attractive in the garden. Fruits mature quite quickly!
Resistant to Zucchini Yellow Mosaic Virus.

This popular garden vegetable has a good combination of nutrients, including vitamins A, C, and K, folate, manganese, and potassium – all important for heart health. Most of these nutrients reside in the skin and the darker the zucchini, the more nutrients, especially beta-carotene and minerals. Like all summer squashes, zucchini are very low in calories and high in water content. Try some squash just lightly steamed rather than fried or in casseroles; you’ll enjoy the maximum of nutrients and retain the low calorie count.
