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.
thanks everyone now found
just for a bit of info
marrow with creamy skin is found in cyprus in winter it is orange inside
marrow with green skin is summer marrow and you can find it about july
hope this little info helps
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......
