Test Kitchen Tip: Chayote are also called mirliton. It is a pear-shaped, tropical squash that is light green in color. Chayote resembles a summer squash and combines the cool flavors of cucumber and zucchini with the crisp texture of an apple. Chayote squash does not need to be peeled and can be eaten raw, baked, roasted, steamed, sautéed or fried.
