Production of zucchini
Zucchini is a botanical variety of pumpkin. It came to Poland from the southern part of Europe. It is valued mainly because it is a low-calorie vegetable - it consists of over 90% water. It is popular due to the fact that it is a rich source of mineral salts: mainly calcium, potassium, manganese and iron. Zucchini is a source of vitamins C, B1, B2, PP and β-carotene (provitamin A). Additionally, zucchini does not accumulate heavy metals, has a beneficial effect on the digestive system, and improves the functioning of the stomach. It is often recommended for people with gastric problems.
In the kitchen, zucchini is valued for its delicate and unobtrusive taste, which means that it is used in many dishes, enriching each dish with valuable nutrients.
Courgettes do not require the same crop stringency as pumpkins or peppers. It is resistant to cold. It can withstand temperature drops down to 6 – 8'C. Vegetables develop well at a temperature of 20 – 25'C. Zucchini has a shallow root system and a high water requirement. Water deficiency usually inhibits plant growth and reduces the yield and size of the fruit. In turn, excessive hydration results in rotting of buds and fruits.
