Choko trial

I have grown the white chokos (Spiked and smooth), and the green chokos before ~ The only time it grew well, it didn’t fruit very much. It just climbed up the neighbour’s big native trees with lots of vine growth…

I would like to give them a try again. Other than the choko fruits, Chinese also eat the choko shoots, and grow tips as a green vegetable. I don’t have much room, nor do I have any more big pots left, so my experiment is planting it in a medium size pot with a 60 cm tall frame (1/3 was buried…) aiming to keep it trimmed and hopefully it would bush up so I can harvest the grow tips ~ Any choko I get would be a bonus 🙂
