More Details

A pretty and tasty pattypan courgette, excellent for stir fries and quick-frying, cut into chunks or sliced with a mandolin. I also love them blanched in stock, just softened, and then dressed in olive oil and a mix of green herbs. That's often how they eat pattypans and courgettes in Greece.
