"People refer to them as vegetables, but small summer squash are actually fruits. But because they end up more starchy, they're usually thought of as vegetables. But if you eat a tender summer squash with some butter, the small amount of starch--if it is well-cooked and eaten with butter--it's very similar to eating fruit. High potassium content and high magnesium."
