Zucchini and Summer Squash


Anonymous added on May 28, 2011 | Answered

I was wondering if it was okay to pick them when the flowers have fully bloomed on the veggie? Also, even if they are not 10-12 in. (but more like 5-8 in. ) and they seem to be ripe, do I pick them and let the season progress and maybe get bigger veggies?

I love the smaller size squash, they are more tender, smaller seeds. I would go ahead and pick them. If you don't wash them before you refridgerate them, they will say a bit longer in the fridge. You can also pick the flowers, stuff them with a savory mixture, batter them and fry them for a nice side dish! Yummy good! Hope that helps answer your question.
