Feature Plant:


The vine dwelling Choko is delicious when steamed, roasted
or grilled!

Lovers of the warmth of tropical and subtropical locations Chokos are a simple easy fruit to grow!
Known for their hardy vine that can spread over 7 metres long (or more given the room!) this perennial does particularly well grown in moist, well composted soil with added fertiliser mixed in, Super Booster works great for Choko’s!

The easiest way to propagate is to bury a fruit in the ground and keep it watered until a sprout appears and then mulch around the base of the plant and let it start to grow up and over trellis, fences, chookpens you name it!

Everything is edible on a Choko, the fruit, the seeds, the vines, the shoots and they are all a great source of Vitamins B,C, Copper, Manganese & potassium.

Choko’s are also called Chayote, Vegetable pear, christophene, citrayota and Alligator pear!
