Do you know Chyote? If you have been in Latin America or have tried the cuisine for there, then this exotic plant is certainly already known you. The Chayote falls into the Group of the gourds. The fruits are pear-shaped. Once they’re green, they can be eaten in the form of salads. They can be roasted or cooked on steam. In this case, they are prepared like potatoes and zucchini.

The plant has a great stamina and is very resistant to any diseases and pests. In Latin America, even the Chayote is perennial. But in Europe this vegetable is not known, it is grown in greenhouses.

What you need to know for the care of Chayote

Do you want to home grow Chayote? It’s an exotic vegetable variety. It shows a very long vegetative period. The simplest method is the use of the entire floor. Also if you want to plant the Chayote in the garden, you should plant first home a stick in a pot of vegetables. Best you should do it in February. After one or two weeks, developed the Chayote and can then be transplanted into the courtyard. The young plant can be used in March or April in the open space in the garden so. You can enjoy a long harvest time if you plan everything time as well.

The Chayote is a climber

The Chayote is a climber. For this reason, it is essential that it is used in the right place. Better build a Stutz, whereupon the Chayote can climb. It is recommended that more than a plant is used. This would have a positive role to the proliferation. The crop will be much more abundant.

Organic fertiliser

For planting of Chayote, we would use the theme like a reason to plead for you to use as many organic fertiliser as possible. The amount which is recommended in this case, would be 3 kilograms on Earth 1-2 sqm. The Chayote is growing rapidly and has very many Anwüchse. Those who do not serve for the baby on the ground, can be cut off. You can use them for additional spreading of vegetable and also for setting up a new plant. The Anwüchse, who are flagella, can be cooked like asparagus and eaten.

Flower pot or garden

You can grow this exotic plant not only in the garden, but also at home in a flower container. We had already mentioned the approach. As I said, you should plant the Chayote also prior to use in the garden first in a flower pot. The lower part must remain free. It would be important in this and in other cases that you install de Chayote in a place, where there’s lots of water and Sun.
