It's a good question, but I don't think the size of the fruit is necessarily the determining factor for harvesting viable seeds. "Courgettes," also known as zuchinni squash, are usually harvested while they're small and tender. I'm attaching a link to a great article about squash seeds.

There is a specific process involved that should help you determine which seeds are viable.
