Won't large courgettes/zucchini work?

You'll find them in every supermarket/fruit store.

It would have to be a VERY large one of those Kwacka to equal a proper MARROW! I've never seen one here - but did enjoy stuffing a few back in the UK last year where we were being given them by local farmers.

I was brung up on that stuff! And a courgette definitely does not quite 'cut it'!

Maybe a little early for Marrows unless they are being poly tunnelled, I grew some a couple of years ago from seedlings bought from the local Garden centre. I planted 3 plants only and each of them produced a few monsters. Probably 18" long and a foot across.
I Love Marrow sauteed down with butter.

Courgettes zuchini and marow are all the same plant, at different stages of maturity. However in the Uk no-one would EVER refer to an 'orange-fleshed' veg as a marrow - they'd call it a squash.
Big courgettes/zucchini are already appearing in all the markets here in Cyprus - green-skinned, green-fleshed - and easily 'stuffable' or sliced, de-seeded and cooked as 'rings'.
But then you can stuff the small ones too......
