A gourmet French zucchini variety, also known as Ronde de Nice and gourmet globe, this heirloom squash is harvested anywhere from one inch to five inches in diameter. No matter its size, its flavor is consistently good. Sometimes this squash is called rolly polly or apple squash.

Not only popular in France, this small squash is a favorite in Italy and North Africa.
