Botanically, zucchini is a fruit but is popular as a vegetable in savory cuisines. The name comes from a plural word for an Italian word for squash- ‘Zucca’; the other name is ‘courgette’ which is from the French word for this veggie.
While the European colonization of America began, zucchini was brought to Europe, where its cultivation started. In the 19th century near Milan, zucchini was developed in Italy.
It appeared in North America in the early 20th century, more accurately in the 1920s. There is a high probability that zucchini’s first place of cultivation was California.
