These easygoing veggies can thrive in big backyards, gardens, or even sprawl out as ground cover. Surprisingly, they're a piece of cake to grow at home, as long as you've got the space and the right climate to keep them happy.
Scientifically known as Cucurbita pepo, Zucchini are part of the big squash family, along with the likes of Pumpkins, Acorns, and all those other squashes. They've got a rich history, originating from the lands of Mexico and Texas, where they've been grown for centuries. These days, we just can't get enough of them, especially when fall comes around.
