Food Facts

Available year round, chayotes are gourd-like fruits that resemble large pears in size and shape. They usually come individually wrapped in a small opened green plastic bag. When purchasing chayotes, look for small firm fruits with unblemished skins. Because of their mild flavor, chayotes complement most other foods. Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Special Extra

Combine 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne) with the Parmesan cheese before sprinkling on chayotes.
