Courgette Flowers ‘Green Bush’

Courgettes are an easy to grow summer crop which produce abundant fruits as well as brightly coloured and versatile yellow flowers. The fruit can be sliced and eaten raw in salads, baked, roasted, grilled, fried or added to pasta dishes. Courgette flowers are popular in restaurants, either on their own, or attached to young courgettes. They are most commonly stuffed with a cheese filling or used to make fritters but there are many other ways to make use of these delightful flowers and the courgettes themselves including as an addition to salads, pasta dishes and soups.
