|Our Chayote Model at the Franklin Inn.|
Chayote is from the gourd family and is sometimes called Mexican Squash among other names. Apparently, it was first cultivated in Mexico and the Aztecs and Mayans ate it. Like the tomato, chayote is actually a fruit. It can be eaten raw and has a mild flavor.
