Medicine of The Day: Chayote
Chayote (chy-O-tay) is the pear-shaped fruit of a west Indian vine in the gourd family.
Chayote is cooling and its flavor is similar to a blend of apple and cucumber.
The smooth-skinned female fruit is lumpy with small ridges and is considered more delectable than the male fruit, which is covered with wartlike spines.
Chayote was a staple food of the Aztecs and is high in vitamin C.
In Central America, a tea made from the leaves is used to treat hypertension and arteriosclerosis.
