What should the inside of a zucchini look like?
Consequently, how do you know when zucchini goes bad?
If the majority of the fruit is 'squishy', extremely discolored, has a foul odor, or the skin is wrinkling or peeling away with the slightest touch, the fruit is should most likely not be eaten.
Subsequently, question is, is zucchini slimy inside? Zucchini skin can be sticky or slimy, so be sure to thoroughly wash it before using.
Also, why is my zucchini yellow on the inside?
Zucchini are eaten when immature and they typically have green skin and pale green pulp. However when they mature the interior (and often also the skin) tends to become orange and the taste is not very good. So I believe what you got it's normal when the fruit matures.
What is the texture of zucchini?
Zucchini is quite a bland vegetable. Its texture is soft but not mushy (at least if cooked right) — its peel is crunchy and the inside is spongy — and its taste is a bit of a squash, with some floral notes and some sweetness to it — but nothing overpowering!
