Can you answer this please- is a courgette a small marrow? If it is how do you tell if its a large courgette or small marrow- and can a cucumber turn into a courgette or marrow. Thank You



Yes it is a small marrow.

And cucumbers can't turn into either courgettes/marrows, they're different plants.

Yup small marrow, or to put it the other way a marrow is a large courgette :-) We bought what was supposedly a marrow once and turned out to be a superb courgette!

Or a courgette is a marrow with an inferiority complex.

Lol Bertie. Or a courgette is much more useful and tastier than a marrow...

I agree Bamboo marrow is often watery to me.
