Eatable though with some fresh baked bread rolls, sliced boiled potato, stringed beans and steamed choko!
Speaking of Chokos - Do you have 'Chokos' in America and UK?

protection from hot winds and frosts.
This unusual climbing plant Sechium edule belongs to the pumpkin family and is a single species native to tropical America. Because the choko plant is a climber, it can easily be grown on fences, trellises or frames allowing the fruit to hang down for easy harvesting. I remember choko vines growing over our chook houses and chicken wire fences when I was a kid growing up in Sydney.
Often it was harshly judged to be a common vegetable without much taste. In Australia, the image of this unusual fruit used as a vegetable was tarnished during the Depression as it became the staple diet of many poor families (especially in warm climates, where the plant tends to be evergreen) and choko was dished up in every possible way, making many older Australians resistant to the use of this very versatile plant and its fruits.
Personally, I love it!
