    Hey guys! Thanks for the interest. It really is one of my favourites. Sorry about the local slang (Christophene). I edited the recipe to include these other names! Chayote, Chocho, Chuchu, Xuxu. It is a member of the squash family with a smooth or maybe slightly prickly white to bright green skin. The core must be removed before use. It has the texture of an apple with the flavour of an under ripe pear. I like to eat it raw too.

    I agree with joe, this sounds great, but also am baffled by what a christophene is?
