LABU SIAM : NEW COMER

This is the new comer...


Last month I took two labu siam krem (creamy chayote) from the Seedling Division.
The chayote were climbing so happy on the green house wall there.

 

I pick some old fruit to be planted on my garden.

 

Look some fruit have germinated. 
Actually the shoot showed up from the fruit when it was still hanging on the vine.

 


Look the beautiful color of the skin...
And the thorns...

 

So... we can compare with my green variety. 

 
I have new comer in my garden...

    1. Yeah, the white variety look so lovely, but the taste less tasty than the green one.

    1. This variety is fairy rare, it's not easy to find them sold on the markets or groceries

    1. We can steam it or stir fry only a few minutes. The taste a little bit sweet and crispy.

  8. I've never seen this fruit before. Can you eat them raw or do you cook with them? Interesting post, thanks for posting!

    1. We usually cook them just for a few minutes to keep the taste sweet and crispy

    1. We can eat them raw as a juice or sliced in salad. Great for soup, curry, steamed or stir fried.

  11. We have the green variety in our markets, but I have never seen the white. It is indeed a very pretty color!
