Storage and Uses
Advisable to store Zucchini in perforated plastic bags inside a refrigerator drawer. Try not to keep this fruit stored for more than 3 days in the fridge as it can get damaged in overly cold temperatures.
It can be lightly cooked and consumed with the peel as it contains beta-carotene and lutein. Chopped/ sliced zucchinis sauteed in olive oil and sesame seeds make a tasty side dish. Chop it into stews and spaghetti dishes or add it as a topping on pizza.

Moreover, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin B2, and calcium in zucchini assure optimal health.
