Commonly planted in Taiwan are these Chayotes for its shoots.
Simply fry them with the young leaves with minced garlic and a little superior light soy sauce.
Popular veg dish served at Putien as “Stir Fried Green Dragon Vegetable”.
Most people are familiar with the Chayote fruits but these twined roots, stem and leaves are all edible. I like especially the crunchiness of the sliced stem.
Locally Chayote is known as Buddha Hand Squash or Fuo Shou Gua.
Indeed a healthy dose of emerald greens infused with minced garlic.
