You Say Yellow Squash...

Okay, this has been bugging me for a while now. Is it still a zucchini if it's yellow? Someone commented that they've always called the GREEN stuff zucchini. Did I screw up?

Well, Googling seems to suggest that there's both green and yellow (or gold if you want to be fancy) zucchini. Of course you can call it all summer squash too. Or you can call them courgettes, like they do in Ireland. That doesn't sound as funny as "zucchini" does it? I guess if you want to be a real wiseguy, you could call them swollen flower ovaries. 'Cause that's what they are. No joke.
