Cream Spiky Chayote
This is a prolific vine producing edible fruits in the warm season. Taste is crunchy when raw, pickled, and has sweeter flavor when cooked, especially in stir fry, or roasting. This variety holds texture well when cooked whereas other varieties get soft faster. When harvested young the spikes are soft. Tips of the young stems is edible. This variety seem to deter critters from taking your food due to the spiky nature of the fruit.

To my friends in HAWAII -- Since shipping live plants to the State of Hawaii are required to be shipped bare root, or in soil-less medium, I cannot ship this plant since I cannot guarantee the life of it upon arrival. Ashitaba has sensitive roots. If you have any questions, please contact me. Mahalo!
