Product Description

Variety: Scura di Milano

Courgettes (also known as zucchini), are beautifully refreshing. These are much sweeter than what you will usually find - try them raw to really notice the difference. You'll notice their smaller size and when cut they have very little interior sponge around the seeds as they have far less water content to the Dutch varieties more commonly found - the same reason they deep fry properly. Whenever you eat this Italian treat, enjoy their sweet, firm flesh in a huge variety of ways, from poaching, frying, stuffing and stewing...

Cooking Guidelines

Wash before use.

Courgettes are the basis for all sorts of dishes, from pasta sauces to main courses. Try them boiled, dressed with olive oil and lemon juice for a light accompaniment to meat meals. They are also supremely delicious sliced extra thin (with a potato peeler or mandolin) and dressed in oil, mint and lemon juice...and even some parmesan slices

were good but current harvest bitter

Previously excellent, new harvest have poor skin condition and a bitter taste

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Tasty, properly small courgettes

I get fed up with Waitrose sending me small vegetable marrows for courgettes, but on the other hand I find Natoora products expensive and often not very tasty, therefore I was delighted that these were so good. The only minor criticism is that they sell you quite a bit of stalk with the veg - but I can put up with that.

bitter

These courgettes were disappointing, no flavour except bitterness. I wouldn't buy them again.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Excellent

These are the best courgettes I have purchased in a while, they kept well and tasted good especially when served in ribbons and lightly fried.

Rating: 2 star out of 5

not fresh

These had to be binned within two days of delivery, they were mushy in the bag and had probably been crushed en route
