The yellow zucchini offers plenty of potassium, which has a balancing effect on the body's fluid balance and is important for various metabolic processes. Strong nerves and muscles are also provided by the magnesium also found in yellow zucchini.

Apart from their appearance, the yellow zucchini are hardly distinguishable from their green siblings; in recipes, both varieties can be interchanged.
