What is Chayote?

Once exclusive to central Mexico, chayote, probably due to its excellent health benefits has spread across the land. Chayote squash or its scientific name Sechium edule is a tropical edible fruit that is a member of the squash family. The chayote (chi-O-tee) squash is used in many cultures and has adopted many common names, including Madeira marrow, vegetable pear, mirliton, gayota, huisquil, papa del aire, chocho, christophine and pimpinella.

The chayote’s taste is mild, similar to a zucchini, and the texture is firm. Its flesh, stems, and leaves can be consumed.
