    What kind of vegetable are chokos?

      Hi Helen,
      Chokos are a vegetable that grow on a vine, they are green, quite bland and reasonably slimy. They are a similar family to squashes like pumpkin and zucchini. Due to the blandness of the vegetable, it is easy to mix them with other flavours and use them as a filler, eg in apple pie if you don’t have enough apples, or in chilli sauce 🙂 They are also really nice baked in an oven. They grow very well in our sub tropical climate.
