Can I find Spiny Chayote in the DFW area?


Have any of you been able to find Spiny Chayote? In particular in the north DFW area, around Frisco/ McKinney, TX? We had some on a recent trip to Ajijic, Mexico. The flavor is somewhat nuttier and creamier than the smooth skinned variety and i'd love to find it up here. I haven't started looking in local hispanic markets yet.

  1. I have never seen it at any of the local markets. Please tell us what dish you had it in and where you ate close to Guadalajara because my interest is now piqued.
