Description: This is a semi-hardy perennial vine native to South America. It can grow up to 15 feet in the mid-South and up to 30 feet in the Southwest. The Chayote produces waxy-green, pear shaped fruits. Some are spiny and some are ridged. Other common names that it goes by includes Mirliton,  Christophine and Vegetable Pear. In climates where they can survive the winter,  the tuberous roots grow large and can be eaten candied,  boiled,  or roasted.
