We planted a yellow courgette and it is producing courgettes however they are white and not yellow - every other year we have had no problems....why might this be happening?

We planted an actual plant from the nursery... never ever had an issue before nd the people at the nursery assured me they do not have white courgettes....we were wondering if it was a climate thing or maybe a soil issue of deficiency...

If it is a hybrid it might be a throw back to a parent.

Are they from the same packet as last year? Could be a mix up of seeds in the packet. I ordered boy choy last year and received Chinese cabbage.

If it is a hybrid it might be a throw back to a parent.
