A member of the gourd family, this versatile vegetable from Latin America
is quickly becoming a produce department standard. We import Chayote from
Costa Rica. All product is checked and repacked at our warehouse. Our
Chayote is smoother and has a longer shelf life than the more common
Mexican variety. Though similar to summer squash, Chayote usually requires
a longer cooking time due to its firmer texture. Choose squash that are heavy
for size and have hard, blemish free skin. Available year round.
