How Much Does a Zucchini Weigh?
Because zucchinis are a product of nature, their weights can vary quite considerably depending on the size of the vegetable.
To keep things simple, I’ve categorized each zucchini size into small, medium, and large.
The table below shows the conversion weights (in metric and imperial) for each size of zucchini based on average official weights from the USDA. Please note that each vegetable will vary in weight, so use this as a guide:
|Zucchini/Courgette Size||Average Metric Weight||Average Imperial Weight|
|Small||118g / 0.118kg||4.4oz / 0.26lb|
|Medium||196g / 0.196kg||6.9oz / 0.43lb|
|Large||323g / 0.323kg||11.4oz / 0.71lb|
Zucchini Serving Per Person
The suggested serving of zucchini is one cup of chopped zucchini (measured raw). A serving of this size will weigh around 124g (4.4oz) for zucchini chopped into small cubes, or 113g (4oz) if sliced.
This serving weight equals one small to medium zucchini or just under half a large one per person.
Although this might feel like a large serving, zucchini contains around 95% water, meaning it shrinks considerably during cooking as water is released.
Zoodle/Courgetti Serving Size
To make enough zoodles to cover a plate or bowl, you will need around one small to medium zucchini or half a large one.
Increase the amount by another small zucchini or half a medium one for a larger serving.
Depending on how you cook your zoodles, you’ll find they reduce in volume when cooked.
Zucchini Cup Weights
If you prefer to measure using cups, the table below shows the average cup weights and conversions for chopped raw zucchini along with the calories per weight.
Please note that these figures are based on averages and assuming the zucchini is chopped into small cubes. Weights can vary if the zucchini is cut into larger chunks or slices because it will take more spade in the cup.
