They grow them on trees in Brazil !

Chayote is an edible plant belonging to the gourd family Cucurbitaceae, along with melons, cucumbers and squash.

Also known as pear squash, vegetable pear, christophene, cho-cho, chouchoute, choko, pipinola, merleton, and xuxu (in Brazil), chayote is originally native to Mexico or Central America where it grows abundantly and has little commercial value. The gourd has been introduced as a crop all over Latin America, and worldwide. The main growing regions are Brazil, Costa Rica and Veracruz, Mexico.

The gourd usually looks like this:

But in Brazil, one woman’s xuxu decided to grow like this. The poor woman looks so embarrassed. LOL

  1. Thank you Dr. Eowyn and Miss May for this funny post: it looks like it has a “mind” (LOL) of its own!

  2. I see you figured out how to use. Now if we could just pass these out to the men of this country…just saying.

  3. Kind of appropriate as Chayote is used as a natural remedy for PMS and cramps. And it works! Don’t ask how I know. Let’s just say it made that time of the month much easier in our household.

  4. ROFL!

    Maybe she’ll send it to the White House so Moochelle can cook it up for Obama.

  5. I think the pres would actually like one for himself!!!!!

  6. To paraphrase Mae West, “Is that a Brazilian chayote in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?”

  7. Hilarious  I think the woman thought XUXU would make her house look beautiful :P
