Marrows and courgettes

Post by karahuels »

I know marrows and courgettes are part of the same plant family but, Is a marrow an overgrown courgette?

Found this online. I hope it helps.

So, while some people think that marrows are just overgrown courgettes, they aren’t quite the same thing. They grow in a similar way, and are both sun-loving, thirsty plants. However, courgette plants are usually a bit bushier, with marrow plants often trailing along the ground.
