A member of the squash family, the courgette, also known as zucchini, is a versatile vegetable with tender flesh and seeds and soft edible skin.


Courgettes can be eaten raw or cooked – just slice off each end and they are ready to go. Keep them in your fridge to ensure they stay at their best.

The UK courgette season runs between June and October, with Spanish and Moroccan crops available across the winter and spring months.

We look for good skin finish and flavour, with baby courgettes available periodically too.


DGM Growers are able to offer Courgettes 52 weeks of the year using both UK and imported crops.
