Chayote squash is defined by its unique pear-like shape, its pale lime green coloring, and the deep linear indentations that run vertically along the fruit’s thin skin. Its creamy white hued flesh has a semi-crisp texture and its central core contains small seeds, which are also edible but typically discarded. The chayote fruit is a wonderful source of vitamin C. Chayote squash’s flavor is lacking in depth and offers a mere insipid taste, thus allowing it to be a carrier sponge of other accompanying ingredient’s flavors.
