Growing choko

The choko (Sechium edule) is a vigorous, perennial vine which is easy to grow in mild, frost-free climates. It can be propagated from a single sprouting fruit in late winter and spring. Plants will bear fruit in autumn and winter, when other fresh vegies are scarce. If you don't have room for a vine, chokoes can be bought cheaply at the fruit market. Chokoes contain fibre, vitamin C, they're low in fat and they can even taste good!
