Zucchinis: They have an origin story – Every superhero has a backstory, explaining where they came from and how they came to be a superhero. Zucchinis are no different. Often mistaken as a vegetable, zucchinis are actually a fruit – a squash to be exact! They are a part of the gourd family along with melons, cucumbers and pumpkins. First grown in Mexico, the oldest seeds discovered were from 7,000 years ago! They quickly grew in popularity, and zucchinis soon spread from Mexico to the rest of the world.
