Chayote squash - does anyone plant them?

Return to Discussions

I mention the chayote squash as it is supposedly easy to grow; that has not been my experience. I had a great vine at my last house but the bulldog literally dug it up & ate it. All of it, vine, roots & the chayotes themselves. It was a real PITB as my luck with those things has been poor. I have tried to plant about 5 or 6 the past couple of years but they have all died. I am trying again but didnt know if someone had a secret they wanted to share. Any takers?
