What is a marrow fruit?
Similarly one may ask, what is the difference between a zucchini and a marrow?
The word zucchini comes from the Italian zucchino, meaning a small squash or immature marrow. Courgette, on the other hand, is French term for zucchini. Zucchinis are the fruits of the same plant harvested when they are 15 to 20 cm long. Marrows are the semi-mature fruits which have reached full size.
Likewise, what is a vegetable marrow in England? The term "marrow" (or for some, "marrow vegetable" or "vegetable marrow") refers to several varieties of thin-skinned, tender summer squash. You're most likely to hear this term in the UK; in the United States, they're called summer squash or zucchini.
Similarly, it is asked, what is in the marrow family?
Marrow. A marrow is a cucurbit, which means it's from the same family as the melon, cucumber, squash and courgette.
What does a marrow taste like?
When raw, the marrow looks almost like part of the bone. It's off-white and hard with a slightly spongy texture. Once it's cooked, it becomes soft and rich, melts easily and tastes almost like butter, with a sweet, nutty flavor and a lighter, more delicate texture.
