My cream chayote is growing so healthy, although it's not as fast as usual.
We can see the chayote seedling here.
I grow it on the early of August.
I planted it on two different places.
The first one is growing so lush, but the second one is growing so poor.
I think the soil is not good enough.

Look... we can see the cream chayote is still there on the ground, but it may not be a food reserves anymore, cause the roots have grown optimally.

I hope they will grow so thrive...
And they will produce lots of chayotes...
I hope...


  1. I planted one of these in a container once, but since I had to bring it inside during the winter it succumbed to spider mites.

    1. Yeah, spider mite is a serious problem on growing chayote. I don't know how many times my chayote's seedlings or little vines were died attacked by these bugs.

  2. Olá querida, passei por aqui para agradecer sua doce presença
    no meu cantinho.Obrigada !!!
    Abraços, Marie.

  3. I never tasted Chayote before but have seen them in wet market! Hope your grow and provide handful harvest! ;)
