Chayote leaves are produced from a perennial climbing plant that has stems that can reach up to 10 meters in length. The leaves have a range of 3 to 5 angular lobes that have small thin tendrils attached near or at the base of the stem. Chayote leaves are a member of the Cucurbitaceae family along with squash, cucumber and melon. The Chayote leaf has a sandpaper-like texture and vivid green color. When fresh the Chayote leaf offers a grassy flavor with mellow undertones of cucumber. The leaf is often added to green salads or Asian stir-fries.
Chayote leaves are available year-round.
