This small pear-shaped fruit is part of the squash family and is also known as choko. Peel the skin first and remove the soft seed in the middle before using. Chayote has a delicate flavour and goes particularly well stir-fired with fresh prawns. Choose a small, firm and unblemished fruit. Store in the fridge in a plastic bag to prevent from drying out.
