Organic Vegetables: Choko tendrils and leaves.



I have a choko vine in my garden. My sister Rose came and harvested the young tendrils and leaves. A quick stir fry in garlic oil, and you have a plate of organic vegetable.

You will be able to buy them in Thai markets. Choko plants grow by them self, there is no need for fertilizer or pesticides. You can harvest the fruit. This is indeed the dream plant for people who are conscious about the sprays that farmers use.

Very nice - looks like kind of a spinach varietal without any of the fertilizer issues. Great post - I will look for them if I can find a Thai market? Thanks. W.C.C.
