How do you sprout chayote squash?
If you want to start a plant from store-bought chayote, look for an older one with a tough skin. Leave the fruit on the counter until a sprout emerges. Once this sprout is about 6 inches long, bury the fruit in well-drained, sandy soil at about a 45-degree angle, fat end down, sprout exposed.
How do you take care of a chayote plant?
Then plant the unmarred chayote fruits at least 10 feet apart from each other. Make sure that the setting is flat so that the bottom and stem end up at the soil surface. Keep the soil moist by watering it regularly, at an interval of 2 - 3 weeks, nourish it with compost, once or twice weekly, during the growing season
Chayote is a warm-season, tender perennial. Plant the whole fruit 3 to 4 weeks after the last average frost date in spring when the weather has warmed. Chayote grows best where summer temperatures are very warm to hot, in tropical or subtropical regions. Chayote requires 120 to 150 frost-free days to reach harvest.
