https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chayote

"Due to its purported cell-regenerative properties, it is believed as
a contemporary legend that this fruit caused the mummification of
people from the Colombian town of San Bernardo who extensively
consumed it. The very well preserved skin and flesh can be seen in the
mummies today"

I'd say about 1.5".

The link as presented by Thunderbird is 404. I even tried removing the
"'s", but that did not help. Then I tried removing mo "/'s". That
worked. In the future, please comply with RFC 3986 (Appendix C) by
bracketing URIs in text (as I do in my signature below for the URI to my
Web site).

Am I the only one who noticed the following?
* President Trump issued executive orders
that increase health-care costs.
* The Republicans in Congress propose to
eliminate itemized deductions for
health-care costs.

Chayote can be quite photogenic, for yoose with lacivious evil
mindsets as whomever took those pictures the image with the white
fluid oozing makes that image appear as a green (unripened) vulva
that's recently been impregnated.

Chayote. I've never had it, but the flavor's supposed to be along the lines of
a weak pear.


Eaten uncooked as in a salad its texture is not unlike an under ripe
pear but tastes nothing like a pear... chayote has very little if any
flavor, it takes on the flavor of whatever it's served with, chayote
can be said to be not unlike tofu... and when properly cooked has the
texture of firm tofu as well. Grown in a tropical clime chayote can
be quite prolific, hundreds of fruit per plant... in Central America
chayote is grown as a livestock crop.

Its actually a vegetable and not a fruit, as it grows on a vine
and is part of the squash family.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chayote


Chayote is actually a fruit, botanically all squash are fruit.

Whatever it is I do not think it is a choco, (Chayote) In Australia we
used to eat tons of them,and make jam with them and they look nothing
like your picture.
