Description

Plant this vine and stand back. It can easily climb to the second story of your house. The fruit is crunchy and mild with a sweet and light flavor similar to a cucumber, turnip, and zucchini. In addition to the fruit, the leaves, shoots, flowers, and roots of the White chayote are also edible and are utilized in culinary applications.
