Chayote Squash

Out of stock

The pear-shaped Chayote squash is native to central Mexico. The squash, also known as a mirliton is sometimes compared to a cucumber or zucchini, and it can be eaten raw or cooked. The chayote's firm, crisp texture and the fact that it absorbs flavors make it an excellent choice for sautés and salads. Its firmness also makes it ideal for spiralizing.

In addition to raising two daughters, Amber and Saffron, they also raise cinnamon, vegetables, herbs, edible flowers, micro greens, avocados, citrus and exotic fruit. Their farm and home are solar-powered and utilize on-farm vermiculture and soil composting systems.

Survival of earth’s living things, such as plants and people, depends on their ability to change with the earth’s environment.
