Special Equipment Needed

Best of Season

Chayotes are available year round. When purchasing them, look for chayotes with firm unblemished pale green skins.

How to Prepare Chayotes

Wash, then peel chayotes with a vegetable peeler under running water since chayotes sometimes ooze a sticky substance when peeled. Cut each chayote in half, then remove and discard the seed with a knife or spoon. Cut up the chayotes and use as desired.
