Tatume (sometimes spelled tatuma) are a slightly oblong type of Mexican zucchini with light green-gray skin. They have meaty, nutty flesh, says toodie jane, and are a summer squash, but can also be allowed to mature on the vine for use as a winter squash. They’re far superior to the Black Beauty variety of zucchini commonly seen in the supermarket, says toodie jane: “Try these if you see them in a Latino market. So good.”
