I spent a little time in Mexico a couple of years ago and fell in love with the chayote.  I haven’t been able to find this veggies since my return.  It is sometimes call the “pear squash” and is used like a summer squash.  It was fantastically light and fresh. My husband and I are entering this next Residency Call as musicians.  If we get in, I’m going to drive back a bushel of chayote.  Maybe this residency is the right opportunity for you, too…
